It’s powerful to know we are not alone. When I think about completing a long race with supportive partners, bands, cheerleaders and “free sprays” of cool water versus setting out alone to go that distance, it is obvious to me I could not do it alone. Job seekers often feel they are on a long, lonely run. The most important encouragement you can give is to let the job seeker know he or she is not alone.YOU are not alone.
Given the state of the economy, the number of unemployed, the growing number of under-employed and the slow growth of real jobs, it will be some time before we get back to full employment.
There are resources around you, reach out. Use those resources. Network. Make connections. Eventually, you will find the spot where your talents and skills are appreciated and valued.
It man take some time. Be patient, be positive. Remember, you are not alone!
