Advice For People Who Are Unemployed (from someone who’s unemployed)

Feeling down is inevitable. But don’t let get that negative emotion wash over you.

Jobs availability are out of your control. Jobs that are suitable for you may not be on the market. Similarly, when the vacancies does come, it may not be the right time for you to move.

Get yourself a side job. This will help cover with expenses until you get hired. Don’t get a shit full time job. It will only go downhill from there. Get a part time job, anything to get you through this testing time. You need money coming in.

You may feel sorry for yourself for this plight. Get it out of your thinking ASAP. Start action.

Keep yourself occupied with activities. Try new stuffs. Don’t let the devil’s mind wander down the dark path.

Apply for jobs. Continue to do so with more vigour. If the opportunity to interview arrived, seize it. Be prepared. Impress the interviewer.

At the end of the interview. Forget about the outcome, because that’s something you can’t control either. There are plenty of candidates out there competing for the same vacancies as you. They want it as much as you.
