Maybe you are looking for a new job, or you would just like to keep the you have ? The figures for unemployment in Europe is probably the first worry of most families, until we all swing back into recuperation mode ? (will this ever really happen) however until then, we need to take note of certain things we can do to maintain or find future employment. We cannot change the world employment climate, but the right attitude to finding and currently working can help us, motivation is a big secret to success, in times of crisis it is more important than ever to not fall into the pit of no interest and what is commonly known as being “burnout” we all suffer from this, at least once in our working life, but, generally it is inoffensive . However we need to take care in the times we are in, due to many companies reducing their working force. If you are at the point of counting the minutes until your day is over, you need to address this situation and put an end to it, here are a few things that may help you overcome this time, Set yourself goals, nothing keeps you going more than goals to achieve, thanks to these we find a little more strength to keep moving forward and to reach the goal. Look for support, in family members or friends, don’t isolate yourself, this will only bring you down, and you will need to look for professional help.Believe in yourself, many people fall into the trap of under estimating themselves and are unable to set goals as they convince themselves that they will not reach the goal and therefore lose motivation. Work more, at times less work can stress you out more than an overload, so always look for things to occupy yourself and give you more responsibility. Always show interest, the more interest you show, the more people will look towards you for new opportunities and possibilities. Do you like your work ? when there is a shortage of work or an economic crisis many people work just for the salary and do work that gives them no satisfaction, our work should be a stimulate to us and not a frustration, although this may not be the perfect time to change, it is always a good time to analyse your situation and options, and maybe prepare for when opportunities come your way.
Contacts are always worth having, 50% of employment opportunities come from people we know, or through the people they know. You need to let people know about your situation . Opportunity is at times in the least expected places, so always be prepared. If you are looking for employment,send out your CV, to all the companies you feel may need your type of services, you can also adapt , each position is different. Always have a letter of presentation on hand, which show your interest in the company, your capabilities to work for them and your references or a small professional resume. Never disregard an option, you just never know. Keep control of all the information you have sent out and to who, to be able to do a follow-up. Be constant and never give up hope, if you do not receive a positive answer today it could be tomorrow. Do not allow a complex to take over, due to your unemployment, and don’t close any doors, even if you are not in the final decision, doors can open at any time. There are many ways to find employment and your attitude and how you present yourself are all taken into account.
