Unemployed In America | I'm Now UnEmployed
I lost my Job in July 2010
Well it looks like I am now a statistic. The Company Location has closed and I am now one of the unemployed. Actually my last day was last Wednesday but it has taken a week to really hit home. Sometimes the unknown can be very scary. It is very normal to feel uncertain. Will I find a job? What will we do if I can't find a job? Will unemployment be enough until I find new employment?
My goal in NOT to have to go on unemployment. I received a severance package so I will get paid for a month. I am really hoping that with my skills and delightful personality I will find something rather quickly or at least before September. Actually in the past I was always hired at the first job I ever applied to.So hopefully it will be pretty easy this time around.
When You are Unemployed, You Need to Remain Positive
But it is difficult to remain positive when there is so much negative talk about there and on the news. They say that more people claim unemployment everyday and that the number of unemployed is at the all time highest at 10%. And it's weird. It seems like everyone I talk to has a loved on who is unemployed or they are unemployed themselves.
I suppose all I can do is be positive and have faith. I believe that everything happens for a reason and I just need to hang in there. So I will keep applying for jobs and remember that the right job will find me. In the mean time, I am earning some nice income with my online activity. So this helps. I'm grateful for that.
