I remember when I worked with job seekers. It was called the great recession, and there were no jobs to speak. I always seem to be able to find something. Something that someone could do until the economy improved. It might be working in a department store, running a cash register at the local fast-food place, or maybe even helping with some sales type. The point is, if you look hard enough, there is always a job out there.
Unfortunately, my most challenging work often met with thank you very much, but ‘please don’t look too hard for me right now; I still have 13 weeks left of unemployment.’ I believe that if you’re not going to take this seriously, please don’t waste my time. In the grand scheme of things, 13 weeks go in the blink of an eye. The whole idea of unemployment is to give someone temporary assistance until they can find their next employment.
Many people think that once the COVID subsides, everyone will be hiring again. History has proven this not to be the case. Owners and operators will not employ new workers until they absolutely cannot do without the help.
when a job is in front of you, or is that the time you start to prepare? History proves time, and again that real victories go to those who plan and are ready when opportunity strikes.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
