The text below is three paragraphs from my new book on finding a job which will be out in the next week or two. Please look it over and let me know what you think.
You need a job. The reason does not matter. The fact is clear you had employment which gave you pay, benefits, a feeling of necessity, fun in your life and any number of other things. It is no longer there for you. If you are over 40, it gets even more challenging. If you’re over 50, it can get downright ridiculous. Yet nothing is impossible.
Now is the time that you need friends. Now is the time not to be shy. Clean up, put on a smile, and let everyone know that you are looking for a new job. Now is not the time for stoicism and quiet. You are going to need all the help you can get to find your next paycheck.
Be sure to register with the local workforce center. Do not hang around there every day for weeks; they cannot hire you. Get the leads they give you and chase those leads to the companies. They are the people who can hire you.
