PRINCESS Ison, 21, became a first-time business owner during the pandemic. But now that the Philippine government is relaxing the restrictions it imposed at the height of COVID-19, she is trying to find a new job that she could do on top of her current business in order to earn more money.
“The pandemic is truly a lesson for me to find an additional source of income because some businesses are not really thriving due to lockdowns,” Ison said in Filipino.
The pandemic also made her wonder what her professional path would be apart from being a business owner.
“During the pandemic, since we were all confined inside our houses, I began questioning what type of job will make me feel fulfilled,” she said.
Wanted: new career
Ison would like a job that could be done remotely or through a hybrid setup so that she could still supervise her business.
Although her business is sustainable and thriving, she said having a different job is beneficial for learning new insights and gaining professional contacts that could help expand her opportunities in the future.
So now she’s on a quest for a new career.
