career-ideas-for-someone-who-wants-to-avoid-the-office

When it comes to our careers, not all of us are fortunate enough to know what it is is we want to do. Which often means we end up settling for something that can provide an income and pay our bills. However, for a lot of people, that might mean being stuck in an office job. Not all of us are inspired by this sort of work, and would rather do something else more suitable. So if you are looking for some career inspiration that avoids the office then here are some suggestions.     

Working in the beauty sector 

Beauty is a huge industry that people can look to work in and there are so many different options that you can consider. You can be really technical and take time to study in ascetics, or even look at getting qualifications in hair or beauty for facial and nail treatments. This is very much a hands on sector and requires no time sat in the office. Unless, of course, you go on to open your own business within the industry. But that might mean that you enjoy time sitting at a desk as it affects you and your profits. The beauty sector is a thriving industry and one to consider if you don’t want the standard office job. 

A driving job of some sort 

Another one to think about would be to consider a driving job. This can vary from driving a van doing deliveries for a logistics company or specifically for a large retail outlet. Or it may require you to specialize in driving a heavy goods vehicle and truck. Which can involve long distance deliveries. You can find out why Tri-State Motor Transport truck drivers are some of the highest paid in the transportation industry online. Driving jobs can also include becoming a taxi driver, either for a company or something like Uber. There is a lot of flexibility with driving jobs. Some require ongoing work for a specific length of time but then equally can give you the extra time off. It is definitely worth looking into. 

Starting your own business from home

If you see yourself as a bit of a “go getter” then you may want to think about starting your own business. This could be something that you are passionate about, a product that you have created yourself or even going out and seeing clients and customers. Your own business means that you might be thinking about the flexible that it can give you, and it is one opportunity in your career where you can do something that you feel passionate about. 

Digital careers 

There is no denying that the advancement of digital careers in these last few weeks has excelled. So maybe this could be an option for you. While it may involve working in an office, it won’t be the standard administration role. Digital careers involve things like website development and management. It could be an excellent option for you to consider, and with many companies using online services these days, it could mean that you could work for an agency or even weird for yourself as a freelancer. Digital careers can also be other things including blogging and social media. Which brings us to the next suggestion. 

Social media opportunities

Social media is huge right now, and with so many people using various different platforms you may wonder if you could make a career out of it. The answer is yes. There are a few different sides to this. You could become a social media manager. This means you manage and create content for companies and businesses that require someone to build their audiences organically. Or you could look at becoming an online influencer. This means that you might already have an engaged audience and you can then earn some money by sharing products, reviews and adverts. It is a new career but one many are excelling at. 

Doing something with your hands 

Finally, maybe you could consider doing something with your hands which could include building, plumbing, electrician or any other skilled profession. This can be something that you work with other companies and be part of a team or a construction building site, or you could look to branch out on your own and make your own business. This could help you to finally be out of the office and doing something that you can feel is rewarding. 

Let’s hope these suggestions help you if you are looking for career ideas that help you to avoid the office.
