Well, duh! Don't we all! I bet if we all weighed in, we are either looking for work ourselves, our spouse is looking, our kids are looking, or our friends or neighbors are looking! Since I am retired, I am taking myself, personally, out of this discussion thank the Lord! I also know 90% of us are employed, according to the news, which totally outweighs the 10% who are not but want to be.
Unless you are one of those 10%. Hey, come on. If you or a loved one are one of those 10% you feel it. Might be your heart is aching. Might be your relationship is hurting. Might be your self esteem is in the toilet. Might be you are in foreclosure. Maybe you are struggling with mounting debt.
I'm the Queen of looking at what ya got, not what you don't got! The list of what I am thankful for does not end. I believe 100% in focusing on what you want, not on what you don't want.
All that said, I also believe in support and the best use of resources. AJAB stands for A Jab At Work. AJAB's site is out there trying to make this job process a little more fun, a little lighter, while adding value and knowledge along the way. It's just another place to go, another action step to take, another way to support. You know, it doesn't really matter how many jobs are out there. YOU only need one. Let's send all our readers to AJAB. He'll answer their questions and maybe get them out of a rut. Someone to talk to and coach you through the dark times is invaluable.
My son's been looking for a job since April (yikes!) and this week he had a great interview! I'll let you know how it turns out. Haven't heard yet but we are expecting only the good! And then we will celebrate! Take care! Pay it forward!
