19 Tips For Being Productive When Working At Home Part 1

When working in an office, your morning commute can help you wake up and feel ready to work by the time you get to your desk. At home, however, the transition from your pillow to your computer can be much more jarring. 

"Believe it or not, one way to work from home productively is to dive into your to-do list as soon as you wake up. Simply getting a project started first thing in the morning can be the key to making progress on it gradually throughout the day. Otherwise, you'll prolong breakfast and let the morning sluggishness wear away your motivation.

Upskillers: Climbing the Career Ladder

This is someone who improves on their current skillset through training and further qualifications. Not to be confused with Side-steppers who seek to learn new skills to transition into a new career, upskillers simply seek to progress within their existing occupation. In a way, most of us are at some point, right?

Why Enhance Current Skills?
There are many reasons as to why one would look to develop their existing skillset; generally, as you’d probably suspect, it’s to further climb the career ladder. It’s fair to suggest that the earlier you decide to improve your skills, the better-positioned your career-ceiling will be for it. That being said, it truly is never too late to increase your future employment prospects.

Let’s take a delve into some reasons as to why you should upskill:

Education Leavers: The First Step into Your New Career

Contrary to popular belief, becoming a success after leaving school doesn’t depend on you following the perceived-best path; going straight on to sixth form and university. Of course, taking the common route has its benefits and with time, effort and dedication put in it’ll certainly be worthwhile. But, what if the prospect of spending another (minimum) 3 years in education and the best part of £40,000 doesn’t appeal to you?

Side-Steppers: How to Change Your Career

Here at The Training Room, we help people all over the country become qualified and support them to find work in their new career. Though open to anybody, we do focus on 6 key social groups: side-steppers, upskillers, education leavers, working mums, job seekers and ex-military. A side-stepper is someone who is thinking of changing their career, whether they’ve only just started or been in an industry for 30 years. It is someone who may feel lethargic and find their work uninspiring, unsuited to them and, above all, not what they want to spend their life doing.

No Experience? Here’s How To Get A Job You’ll Love

So, you've decided it's time to look for a brand-new job, as you explore through your options, you start getting this daunting realisation you haven't gained the skills required to be accepted for any of these roles.

It's time to stop panicking; the fundamental thing you need to understand is that all the skills described on a job description aren't required. Most employees are welcoming to getting to know somebody on their personality and strengths combined. So, even if you potentially possess fewer skills then someone else, you may hold the characteristics to fit the business considerably more.

I am sure you have all been reading with horror the devastation being caused by bush fires in Australia. The fires are still a massive problem and have burnt over 4.9 million hectares of land; killing and injuring millions of animals.

Christmas-Career-Survival-Checklist
Christmas Career Survival Checklist

As Christmas is swiftly approaching its cheers and celebrations all around, but don't let the festive season be an excuse to prevent progression in your career. We have put together a quick guide on the most beneficial ways to use the Christmas period for both personal and career development.

Christmas catch-ups
For most, the Christmas period can be a little sluggish and you may find you have more time spare in your day, or you may find the atmosphere in the office seems to slow down. This can be a good time for you to catch up with colleagues, old and new, and connect with departments that you may be looking to shift to if the opportunity arises. Becoming more social and getting yourself known with the right people can be very beneficial when it comes to career development, especially if you're looking to make a significant switch in your career. People are more open to getting a drink and socialising over the Christmas period, so take every opportunity to extend your network.
