I recently read that Spain is suffering from an unemployment rate that is just slightly below twenty-three percent. That is truly huge. That means that at least one out of every five people capable of working do not have a job.
I do not know if the government is paying some type of unemployment compensation to those without jobs. If you are from Spain, please leave a comment below and let us know about the situation there.
When the unemployment rate is so great inside the borders of Spain, there may little choice but to look outside those borders. Is that possible without leaving the country?
Here is how it could work.
The first possibility would be to find contract work that can be done over the Internet.
There are third party websites that act as an intermediary between those looking for some short term (sometimes longer term) contract work and those looking for workers to do such work.
That work might include, but is not limited to things like:
Graphic design work
Data entry tasks
Writing or translating documents
Coding and Programming
Carrying out simple but mundane tasks such as placing an article or multiple directories
Editing and Proof Reading
Perhaps there may even be positions where you supervise a team of people – all from your computer. You might never see these people in person.
There are a surprising amount of opportunities. You can read more here.
The second possibility is trying to build some sort of Ineternet business where you can work towards creating your own revenue source. This is typically quite hard. It is not easy at all and requires extreme effort and intelligence. This is particularly true if you are trying to start from scratch. You can learn more about such opportunities here.
Starting a business is not an easy task. It requires a great deal of work both to set up and to keep going. Getting started is the hardest part. You need momentum – and then you need to keep that momentum going.
If you are just looking for something to help you get by, it might be best to look at the first option above.
I do not know if any of these will help our friends in Spain but I sure hope it does.
