Unemployment Sucks!

Hi Everyone

It’s official, unemployment sucks!

With the poor state of our current economy, companies going into administration, others closing a number of stores or offices and some being taken over, the future it would seem, is one of uncertainty, apprehension and instability.

So what can you do?

You can start taking control of your life.  You need to:

1)  Assess your current financial situation and adjust your expenditure accordingly.

2)  Get help and support from family and friends.

3)  If depression is setting in, do something about it before it spirals out of control.  You must stay positive at all costs.  No one wants to employ someone who seems unhappy and in turmoil.

3a)  Consider talking to your doctor.

3b)  Seeing a councillor is a great way to express how you feel in an impartial environment.  Don’t wait for your doctor to suggest it, get help now!  Don’t be ashamed.

If you take action now, you will be able to recover more speedily, increasing your chances of being able to get a job quicker, because you will be more focused, in a better frame of mind and more able to cope with whatever an interviewer throws at you.

3c)  If you feel like you can’t cope, contact the Samaritans on 08457 909090.  Their website is www.samaritans.org


4)  Quality rather than quantity, is the key to getting responses from job applications. Spend time targeting them to each individual job.  Remember you only get out what you put in.  EFFORT brings REWARDS.

In the meantime, stay positive.
