I would like to add a link to Paul Parry´s blog, explaining how to find a job doing things different than others.
I was thinking that it is interesting the meaning of the words attached to job, for example: "job hunting" or "looking for a job".
What type of things to you hunt? Lions, tigers, elephants...?
What type of things do you look for? Keys, bank cards, papers, transport tickets...?
In my own case, I like calling it "Create and Sell". I have learnt a lot of things in different type of studies, but at the end, what I am more interested are the things I create, because they contain not only my knowledge, but my experience and motivation. Besides, I shape them in the way they are more interesting to me.
For example, when I write a book, I write about something that I enjoy. At the same time, I think it can fulfill two missions: on one side, it can be sold and I can obtain money for it. The fact that the books I write are about my favourite topics, the ones I am passionate about, it is a pleasure for me to talk or to write about them, about their benefits (to sell them). On the other side, whenever you create something, there is a tangible product or service you can show (for example, a book, etc.). You can have certificates of studies you have done, references of jobs, etc. but to me, a product you have developed carries your "signature", your personality, your motivation, your real identity and it is something you can show as an ingredient of your CV.
That is why, one interesting way to find information is to look in some websites such as www.amazon.co.uk search for a product that you are interested, for example a book about your favourite topic, identify the name of the author and then visit his/her website, where you can find more information included in the website, articles, blog posts, etc.
