Whilst you are redundant it is important to keep yourself active by:
- Seeking work: Surf the web, go to the job centre, look in shop windows, buy the paper, talk to your contacts, just keep looking and never give up.
- Applying for jobs: It may sound stupid but if you keep telling yourself there is no work out there, you will begin to believe it. Tailor your C.V.and Cover letter to the job for which you are applying. Highlight your skills in relation to that specific role. Do your research. Sell yourself.
- Doing voluntary work: Is a great way of learning new skills, boosting your self confidence and self esteem and is a fantastic addition to your C.V.
- Hobbies and interests: Make sure you pursue these. It is important not to stagnate and become depressed. To stay motivated you must relax and enjoy life.
Remember – Stay positive.
