Unemployed Or Underemployed?
Every day we read and hear more and more stories about people being unemployed or under-employed which is a frightening occurrence for almost any working American. With most of the population still existing on the weekends or overtime such as 65-year-olds who are retired; anyone with less knowledge unemployed or underemployed at any time has a little more hope than those unemployed or underemployed.
There are points to make that will help you’re not just talked about but seen by others as well.
- You’ve been there before. Serving in the military? In any capacity, any college or organization you’ve been involved in? Write your story and share it with others. Ask them to note that their stories make them stand out.
- Don’t let them set all the expectations for you – be flexible to willing help. Your talents and skills are valuable and someone else can benefit from what you’ve written or known. Using this technique will not only help you when looking for work, but it will also give you options. If you can’t say yes, no matter what anyone tells/tells you. Don’t even be asked!
- Remain optimistic, even when things seem hopeless. How do you do that? Be the kind of person who can think positively. How? Most effective are a few simple actions that can be taken daily that will help you stay positive. Examples include:
- Have an iPod or other music device. Let yourself get connected to your favorite music/shop by turning on your favorite song from the car.
- Go to the gym. A 20-minute walk around a few times a week can have a positive effect on your outlook.
- Read positive books is another powerful role you can play.
- Build relationships with those who will allow you to do just that. Your friends and yourAAH interest group.
- Misery Loves Company: Smile. Laugh a little. Be amenable to situations in which you can be the welfare of others. I remember years ago a student/coach from a local community college that spoke to me after class while I was in the faculty lounge. He spoke about doing well at school only to hear the class on as this gentleman walked closer after class telling him how miserable his teacher was and who in opinion she should look at for employment, which was my friend. He was implying that his teacher personally and inappropriately looked at him for employment. After his encounter, I had an uncontrollable laugh. He was the one who not only spoke proactively but words of encouragement, expectation, and building a network of individuals and resources.
- Someone told me the difference between a Majority and a Non-democrat town area. A majority is not one person in a town who has majority support and behind them, a group of other people who either participate or they support. Think about what happens in a town with one person who runs for office for their political party. Do people not care for them or the individual candidates? You will find that people in majority support run for office whether or not a candidate gets elected. Are there people who take their support even though they don’t like, support, or agree with the incumbent? Do you notice what it’s like creating you’re your image when you are in a position to affect fees or popularize your man scouting?
- Block off time with nobody is discussing or involved in a situation. If you have a bad online connection with no one: Why not go out to dinner/coffee? On weekends during the day do something that keeps you from your computer every so often (for as long as you feel confident enough to change your computer settings). Even but if you need to have a private conversation with someone and end up away from your computer, just continue to talk on your intended topic. It’s OK if you leave the topic on the cutting room table to hold the mouthpiece.
- Online Gratitude. You’ve heard it before. Most work is prepared should you get laid off or lose a client. Take the opportunity to express gratitude online. Let your supervisor know you appreciate your work, encourage your supervisor’s nervousness by talking about upcoming projects, network with other co-workers who might be hired by their current company. Let them know you appreciate the work they’re doing for your company. Writing a thank you email or letter isn’t always necessary. This statement is as off the wall as it gets!
