Welcome to Perfectly Employed! We are career mavens with a mission to help you create the career you really want.
We Give Advice for All Careers
We recognize that our readers are all in different places in their careers, and we try to honor that by covering a variety of career-related topics. Some of our readers just want to find a “for now” job that will serve as a stepping-stone to greater things. Many of our readers are college students who need help learning to network and crafting their first resume. Another huge part of our audience is at a turning point in their career and not sure how to make a change towards finding a career that will make them happy.
Your career path is rarely a straight line. It’s easy to get lost and forget what makes you happy. We are here to help you when burn out strikes.
We Love to Make Money and We’re Happy to Show You How!
We also realize that in today’s economy, everyone needs ways to make a bit of extra money on the side, so we write about side hustles and how to use skills you already have to make extra money. We show you how to use your side hustle as yet another stepping stone in your career path.
If you’ve had enough of working for “the man,” you may be considering starting your own business. We love that idea! We can help you find the confidence and resources to follow your bliss on your own.
