Today’s Presentation

Job hunting is stressful. There’s no doubt about it. 69% of people report feeling highly stressed when trying to find a new job. Sometimes finding work, especially a job that you’re actually excited about, takes time.
On average, it takes more than 22 weeks (over 5 months!!) to land a new job. No one should be living under stress for that long, which is why it’s important to engage in self-care during the search process as part of your strategy. During this time we will discuss some of the challenges of looking for work, establish the importance of establishing routines , learn to avoid common pit falls and applicant mistakes and share tips help your resume and job application/s stand out from the crowd.
