Job Loss Due to Coronavirus

Job loss due to Coronavirus is devastating.  This unprecedented event is hard to deal with and also takes a toll on you emotionally. It’s important to stay active and ignite your inner strength to push forward and stay on-track with your career path. I created an action plan for anyone who is experiencing job loss due to Coronavirus to help guide you through the tough situation of navigating though these uncertain times. These are steps I followed to help get me back on track, push forward, and take quick action towards new opportunities.
Stay Active
  • Listen to webinars
  • Podcasts
  • Listen to experts in your field
  • Read books
  • Exercise regularly

*Use this time to learn more and upgrade your skills! Stay Busy!

Family & Friends

Connect W/Your Network

  • Ask for references
  • Ask for help w/search

Update LinkedIn Profile

Linkedin is used by recruiters worldwide. It’s important to showcase yourself as a professional. Be sure to add a professional picture, bio, all certifications, education, and add your relevant skills.

Schedule Your Day

Each day should be improving your skill-sets and looking for jobs. Don’t lose your great work habits by sleeping in and staying up late. Even eat your breakfast, lunch, and dinner at the same time! Prepare like a champion!

Mindset=Never EVER Give Up

Sometimes our situation gets the most out of us, so be prepared to move past negative thoughts by:

  • Journaling
  • Doing something new and creative
  • Tune in to your favorite influencers
  • Meditate
  • Read about others who’ve gone though similar struggles for inspiration

Hope this helps!
