Lost Your Job? - Here Are Some Tips

This Too Shall Pass

The first thing you need to, take a deep breath and relax. Sure, it may seem that the walls are melting all around you. Just remember that "this too shall pass". Nothing is permanent, you learned it by losing your job and you'll learn it again when you find another one.

Keep Yourself Busy

When you lose your job, it's easy to fall into a slump and feel unmotivated to do anything at all. Do not fall into it! You don't have to spend all of your time sending out resumes. Just make sure that you have something to do when you have some spare time. And hell, why don't you...

Rediscover a Hobby

Why don't you pick up the guitar that's gathering dust and lighten the mood with some sweet melodies? Hobbies can help give you the feeling of progress you used to get from work! Write songs and let out all of your job searching frustrations.

Focus Your Job Search

Don't shotgun job applications! It may seem you're making progress, but you're not. A well made resume can be very good, but you're handicapping yourself in the long run. Don't risk quality over quantity when applying for a job!

If you want to make sure that your resume stands out, you have to customise your resume for every job. It's a lot of hard work, but you'll be showing your interest in the company while also preparing yourself for any questions that might arise at future job interviews.If you want more tips on resume build specifically. 

Consider Working Freelance

You need a job? Well, why don't you try freelancing? There are a number of downsides to working freelance but there are also several benefits. The main one is that in many cases, you can work from home.

Reconnect

Let's be honest here, without a job, you have a lot of spare time on your hands. Use that time to reconnect. Reconnect with your family, nature, clowns! Anything and everything that you wish you had more time to connect to when you had a job. If you do that, maybe you'll be able to look back on this time and see it as a growing experience.
