Finding A Job Is A Major Life Event!
If there’s one thing I know and know well … finding a new job is as stressful, if not more stressful than having one!
Having been on both sides of the fence, I can attest to the fact that being employed has its stresses in that you want to continue exceling and doing well for your company.
When I was out of a job, I had to figure out what areas I needed to brush up on — like computer skills — and take the necessary time to take a couple of refresher courses. Then, and only then, I could get back on my feet and start looking for another job! Whew, talk about frustrating setbacks. Plus, there’s the concern about paying bills on a tight budget, if any!
Enough about me and onto survey details I found to share with you. According to a New York television station, 90% of those polled said that looking for a new gig is more stressful than planning a wedding. 80% agreed that it’s harder than moving or welcoming a new child into the family, and 31% said that finding a job is more stressful than grieving through a family death.
With that said … don’t give up, just brush-up and pursue your dream job today! You can do it and I’d love to encourage you along the way. Leave your comments below or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
