day 8 of learning

Learned a lot of different things today. I decided to hop around through the different sections and I learned stuff like how to sell digital goods. The types of digital products you can sell and in general what is a digital good. Honestly before this program I didn't know that digital goods even existed so I must certainly learned something new.

Day 4 of learning

Today with remote careers I looked into Virtual Assistants. Which is something new for me. Through this section, if one wants to become a virtual assistant they can find opportunities on websites like Glassdoor, link design, monster, indeed, and much more. Also, learn more about different virtual assistant jobs for beginners for example zip recruiter or Upwork. I even got the chance to watch youtube video on how someone was able to get a virtual assistant job with no experience and essentially make 1000 per month. Which can potential build-up? Overall it seems to me that being a virtual assistant means earning money from home, flexibility, and a healthy balance of family and work.

Day 2 of learning

Today I still keep my focus on remote careers. However I moved from finishing up learning about fundraising to learning about recruiter and talent acquisition. This section was pretty interesting and I have much to learn from it as well. For one i leaRNed how to build a name for myself through social media. The topic also looked at action verbs for job descriptions and search and finding job candidates. One thing that really stood out to me was learning about communicating skills. Through that I learned that it's isn't really about talking a lot but more or so learning how to listen effectively

What I learned Today

I have learned a lot at Techie Youth. Today I looked at remote careers and within remote careers, I learned about video editing and fundraising. One thing I like about a career such as a video editing is its flexibility. I think a flexible job is really important especially if you have another job to the side or if you want to take care of family. Then I also learned about fundrasing which was an intersting one. Learning the basics of findrasing, elevator pitch, how to make connections through linkedin are all important things to learn even if yu dont plan to fundrasing. I think this can help develop good communnicating skills and allow you to network! I hope to learn more about remote careers as it is something that I may be interested in doing to the side or maybe at some point in my life.
