3 Tips on How to Manage the Initial Stages of Unemployment
As a life coach, I’m very aware that losing your job may leave you directionless; therefore, managing the initial stages of unemployment can be particularly difficult and is a very important stage.
You may be left feeling sad, angry or frustrated and questions of what to do next will inevitably be on your mind.
Taking the next step can be challenging, and you may find it easier to start taking action with these 3 tips:
- Set yourself a routine for your week and keep your weekend activities separate from those that you do during the week; in this way the weekend will be rest, relaxation and play time and the week will be focused, efficient, practical work-related time.
- Being unemployed can bring with it a lot of frustrations and there may be a lot of hours when you will need to be on your own. As much as possible avoid isolation, you can do this by spending some of your time in a library, cafe or finding a friend who is in a similar situation to spend time with and help keep each other focused. Where possible plan your day to be in the company of others; sometimes when we spend too much time alone we can become a prisoner of our own thoughts.
- Be resourceful – pre-plan a number of angles that you will use to do your job hunting. For example – job boards on the internet, recruitment companies, existing contacts, and online networking such as facebook or LinkedIn can be useful. If you have a multiple angle approach, you are increasing the possibility and probability of finding a job. And, a further benefit of doing this is that the time you spend searching for a job is more varied and interesting.
By planning and managing the initial stages of unemployment, you are more likely to deal with this time in your life effectively, and ultimately it can help you feel more positive and be more productive.
