Overview

There's no denying the devastating impact that losing a job can bring. Besides the obvious financial stress, unemployment often impacts the way we feel about ourselves. For many of us, the contributions we make from our work build our self-esteem. Work often provides us with a sense of purpose and a social support network. It's no wonder that people who are out of work find themselves feeling despondent and isolated. Given all of this, maintaining a positive attitude can feel like an oxymoron.

This workbook takes the reader through a step-by-step process to stay motivated during the job hunt. The workbook is divided into six areas: Developing a Positive Vision of the Future, Understanding Where Messages About Ourselves Come From, Changing Your Negative Self-Talk, Leveraging Your Strengths, Seeking Out Positive People, Finding & Providing Inspiration and Taking Care of Yourself. Also included are articles on job interviewing tips and positive self-talk. The activities in this workbook provide specific actions to overcome negativity, reduce stress and improve motivation during the job hunt.
