You just lost your job. Your bills are piling up and you just don’t know how you are going to feed your family. The anxiety,the stress, and the depression starts to kick in.
Don’t let this downfall consume you. All you need to know is that; You are not alone! So many people are int he same predicament, can’t find work, filling out several applications and going to a ton of interviews just to find out you were not the best candidate and someone else got the position. Yes, i know it gets frustrating!! You get to the point where you just want to curl up and die. You think people start to look down on you, so many different emotions are going through you head. I am here to tell you, that it gets better!!!
Never giving up is a big part of the battle. If you are turned down for a position that you thought you were qualified for,so what, big deal! You know how I see that ,I see that as one door closes so a better one can open up. I had a friend that graduated from college with a masters, and had been trying to land a job in an advertising company. She didn’t have any luck, and had to work at a casino and she still hasn’t found a job where she can utilize her degree.. I am not saying do no go back to school, or finish school, I am saying that just because you have an education doesn’t mean there will be a job out there waiting for you. You are going to have to grind on a daily basis, and don’t take no for an answer.
Here is what you should do…If your resume is extensive, you have experience in several positions, that is a plus, but also remember that your volunteer experience adds to it as well. Say you volunteered at a hospital, or fundraising events, depending on what you did, you can place that on your resume as well.
You can take the knowledge that you already have and start your own business. Find that one thing that you love and do well.
I know I spoke about my friend having her Masters and still can’t find a job, but don’t let what I said deter you from going back to school! Go further your education, the more you know the better off you will be. Apply for Financial aid, don’t be embarrassed to do so. That’s what is wrong with a lot of people nowadays. They are embarrassed to seek help from The Government. Hey, that’s what it is there for!! Utilize all the assistance that is offered.
Also, while you are job searching, you must have a way to feed and clothe your family, pay a few bills, make sure they have medical insurance.. That is where Public assistance comes in handy. I am not saying to get on it, and stay on it! Don’t use it as a crutch! You it for temporary usage, until you get back on your feet.. It will happen as long as you DO NOT GIVE UP!!!!!
I have Faith in you….Have Faith in yourself!!! Let me know how it goes…You can send me an email firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment here!!!
REMEMBER…YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!
PEACE AND LOVE FROM MS. RAQCI TO YOU!!!!
