Working from around the world: Paris Edition

Non-sightseeing in Paris: a new society

Today’s article will be going over the various occupations one can partake in Paris. Our company focuses on providing the best tours of Notre Dame, but many of the visitors that book a tour also come to see the culture of the town. Ever since the internet has become popular, people have been going to many different places to make a living. Paris, a fashion capital, has seen other occupations become more prevalent as people want to experience the culture and have other avenues of making money.

Non-traditional jobs for Paris Residents

The internet has allowed many individuals to diversify their income streams. One local resident, Frances Lord works in the online e-commerce niche. He tells us that he moved to Paris over a decade ago and ever since then he has been working on the internet. First he started his own review website but as online multiplayer games gained popularity he decided to focus on providing services for video games like Runescape. He mentions to us in this interview that the biggest rs gold websites are making over 100,000 euros per year trading virtual items. Intrigued, we ask him how the process works.

Frances tells us that these entrepreneurs establish a reputation on various online forums and then purchase bulk in game items from suppliers to retail to individual consumers. One of the best osrs gold sites is called RSgoldstop.com. Frances tells us that this site focuses on providing great customer service to Runescape players. By focusing on providing value for their customer like offering weekly articles that help provide players with tips and rs money making guides, the site has established itself as an authority in its market.

Shortage of Blue Collar Workers

Frances also tells us other individuals in the area focus on a more legitimate occupation. Web developers and IT consultants have flocked to the beautiful city to work remotely. It’s a very common phenomena these days: young people decide they want to live in a city where traditionally there wouldn’t be the jobs they want. The internet allows them to work remotely, some of them even work for themselves as independent contractors who advertise their services on Elance!

Remarkably, Frances tells us that there are many more options for young individuals who want to relocate to Paris. In fact, these days the city has a shortage of workers in traditional job fields. Because many of the youth of Paris have decided to go to post secondary school, career positions like being an electrician or plumber have seen a shortage in labor supply. Frances insists that individuals who are willing to work a blue collar job will have access high demand positions where they can make significantly more!

Consider relocating to our beautiful city

Overall, it seems like our beautiful city is a great place for tourists and residents alike. Once you finish your tour, you may like the city so much you decide to relocate here. Paris is a great place for people to not only soak in the rich history of the city but start a career as well. In fact, we have had visitors who liked the city and our tour so much that they applied for a job. Our shift supervisor Mallory actually was originally from the United States but relocated to Paris to work at our tour company. I hope this article provided you with a fresh insight on the opportunities other than historic sightseeing that occurs in Paris. See you soon and if you’re actually headed to a different destination check out our article on places around the world.

 

How to Pack a Suitcase

Introduction

People think that packing a suitcase is something simple to do. However, it should be known that it is a science that has rules which have to be followed. In most cases, people learn these rules once they are hundreds of miles away from home. If you do your packing strategically can help you have a nice vacation with fewer problems. Good news is that there are some easy tips that can guide you on how you can pack your suitcase.

Have a countdown of your clothing

Whenever you are traveling, it is important to understand why you are traveling and what you will do during your trip. If you answer such questions, then you will have the exact number of clothing that you will require for the journey. You can limit yourself to a certain number of clothes so that you get enough space for other items. For instance, you can have the following:

  • Five sets of underwear and socks
  • Four Tops
  • Three bottoms
  • Two pairs of shoes

 

Space-Case

Make it like Tetris

This will be the best way to ensure that all your items fit into one suitcase. You have filled every space that is in the suitcase. For instance, socks should be stuffed in footwear. The shoes should then be put in a different shopping bag and be placed at the bottom of the bag to keep the other clothes protected. You can decide to roll your clothes together hence maximizing space.

Pack your toiletry bag

 

  1. Liquids should be kept within easy reach

Things like toiletries should be kept in a place that they can be easily accessed in the suitcase. Mostly they should be at the top so that it does not require you to go to the bottom to look for them. When they are urgently required is not when you should good deep in the suitcase to find them. Ensure that they are easily accessed at any time.

 

  1. Do not unpack the toiletries

It is recommended that you should keep a separate kit for the toiletries whenever you are traveling. By doing this, it acts as a guarantee that you will not forget bathroom products and things like a toothbrush. In the house, they should be in one place so that they are easily seen for packing. You have to note that these items should be among the first items to be packed since they are easily forgotten. They should also be packed separately and where they are easily accessed.

Select important travel credit cards, cash, and documents

You should collect all the documents that are important in your document organizer. This organizer may contain documents like your ID, credit cards; passports a boarding pass or even a pen. Once the documents are put together, it means that you have all you need when moving from one place to another. Double check to see that all the contents of the document organizer are available. Also, the document should all be updated or will not expire during your traveling period.
