Finding Work Again After Becoming Unemployed
Being out of work for the first time in your career is a frightening concept for anyone. Aside from the obvious financial concerns, other factors such as routine and overall mental wellbeing come into play which can make a collapse in your job search.
The first and most important step to take when you are out of work is to stop yourself from slithering into this rut of self-doubt and apprehension. Evolution will show you how to stay motivated in such circumstances, what actions to take and how to jumpstart your career again
The dishonour of unemployment
Dealing with unemployment is ranked as one of the scariest aspects of losing your job. Answering typically standard questions from relatives, friends and potential partners becomes somewhat terrifying, It’s very easy to enjoy more lie-ins, make more time for TV series / boxsets, play on your favourite video game when you don’t have a job to go to, but you need to set a well-ordered routine if you want to make your career bounce back quickly and successfully.
First steps to getting back on the job ladder
Rotting every day in your onesie pyjamas, shuffling around the house like a robot and planning on how you’re going to win your first Fortnite game is not productive. Set aside an hour or two in the morning looking for jobs, bookmarking any that catch your eye. Once you’ve found a selection, spend the next hour applying for each one ensuring your CV and cover letter is tailored to that specific role.
Get back into work as soon as possible. Even if you fail to find a role that perfectly matches your skill-set / long-term career ambition, getting any job will emphasise your proactive approach and work ethic. It is a well-known fact that people already in employment find a new job much easier than people out of work.
