I spoke with someone recently who has been looking for a job since pre-COVID.
She sounded defeated and lost a lot of confidence. She started internalizing rejections even though she had a long career filled with promotions.
Finding a job is a process that can feel like a rollercoaster in any situation. It’s tougher these days, and you just have to keep going.
If you feel like you are struggling and doubting yourself during this process, one thing you can do is to repeat kind, compassionate phrases to yourself:
You’re having a rough time, but you’ll make it through.
You’re trying hard, and you’re doing your best.
Keep going and hang in there!
