Alternative source of income and New skills?With uncertainty in the job market and layoffs rising especially in private companies more and more people nowadays have started thinking of developing an alternative source of income. In fact, it is said that a time will come when there will be no jobs left and people would have to be themselves responsible for their own employment.
With such an insecurity in mind working population now seem to have an additional burden of doing something else apart from their job. This is also not easy as people need to invest theirs after office hours and weekends towards their effort to build some alternative source of income and this results in people not able to spend proper time with their family after the office hours. Ultimately work-life balance gets affected due to this.
But I think there is little choice left for the people and thinking of alternative source of income which is under our control has almost become a necessity now.
Apart from this companies also have set high expectations from their employees to get updated with latest skill sets on their own so that they remain useful to them. This again requires additional efforts outside the office hours.
Isn't life becoming difficult for the working population?
