Other Employment Opportunities

A full time job is not the only option open to jobseekers, interim management can be either a career opportunity or a stop gap whilst your continue job seeking or work on establishing your own business. 

Franchising offers the opportunity to adopt a currently successful business model, someone else has already taken the initial risk to demonstrate the viability but expect to pay for the priviledge with a purchase fee and a share or business revenue/profits; you may also have to buy back your business after a set time and pay fees for services such as marketing and advertising.

A start-up business is the other option to consider; after a career in management or running aspects of someone elses business this could be the natural career progression. 

Whatever your decision take as much advice as you can get and don't be afraid to ask, most business owners love to tell how they have made it alone.
