There is no work? Nonsense! You just can't look for her!

job loss how to handle
When I hear that there is no job, I wonder if we live on the same planet. I go to the first better portal with job offers and see hundreds of ads from the "I will hire" category. That is why saying that there is no job is nonsense. Maybe you can't look for it or you are too absorbed in looking for a job. Relax, I made that mistake too.


Losing a job is a judgment for most people. Lack of money causes us to panic, which is reflected in the effective search for a job.

Work and only work

The first mistake that many people make is that apart from work, they have nothing else. Passion, other life functions, just something that fills the time. Employers like people who have their passions. Do you know what your passion is?
My passion is reading books (mainly guides and books on psychology), blogging, yoga, cooking and meditation. It's something that I devote time to when I'm not working. And why did I devote my time when I didn't have a job? Do you think that my personal development texts are so authentic? Because everything I write about has survived and I had to deal with it.
There have been better and worse moments in my professional life so far. There were months without financial liquidity, there were also those in which we had to borrow money from loved ones to survive. Thanks to these experiences I am where I am.

The biggest challenges after losing a job

Most of my passions are free - I can blog without money (although on the other hand I have to pay for internet to be able to blog, so in 100 it is not free), I can meditate without money (I meditate with the YouTube channel, so if I pay the internet, I can meditate calmly), I can also cook without much money, it is even a bigger challenge when you have a certain daily budget.
I only need money for books, but I happen to have a lot of ebooks waiting to be read. Yoga is a bit worse because I love to practice with a group. However, I also found a way - free classes organized by the city. Interestingly, once a month, my former instructor runs them.

Absorbed in looking for a job

The biggest mistake you can make after losing your job is absorbing this unpleasant event. I made this mistake myself, because only work defined me. However, you must remember to develop your passions, which can be motivation in difficult times.
When I lost my job and had no vision for further professional development, I looked at job offers on 3 websites several times a day. In an act of desperation, I sent my CV for offers that completely did not interest me. After a few days I realized that I already know most of the offers by heart. It was a mistake, because at some point I began to get frustrated and my stress level was reaching the highest mountains in the world.
If I knew then that I am making one of the biggest mistakes, and my actions will not bring the desired results, otherwise it would all look.

Let it go

In one of the books on the organization of time that I recently read, I found a passage that gave me food for thought. When we want love, we are looking for someone who will make us happy. The fact that we are still alone is all the more striking. When we give up, we find love. When we look for a job, we review hundreds of offers every day, get frustrated, and get depressed. When we let go, we suddenly find a job. And you know what ... in both cases it worked for me.
When I gave up looking for love, I met Piotr (interestingly, in his case it was the same!), When I gave up looking for a job and took up personal development, I suddenly got a job offer that suited me in 100%.
I am not saying now that you should stop looking for a job because it will find you. Unfortunately, this is not how it works. Simply respond to offers that interest you 3 times a week, and the rest of the days take care of personal development or your passion. You will see that it will bring better results than browsing the same offers several times a day and falling into a larger hole.

    Right! There is work, but not everyone wants to look. By entering so many facebook portals you can immediately notice that it has become more of an advertising website

      It is true. There are special job search groups on Facebook and they are very popular.

    Yes, there is work, but it does not always meet the guidelines of the jobseekers;) With the rest of the job loss is a necessity of changes, and these come to most people with difficulty ...

    Depends a little on the situation 🙂 If there is nothing to pay for the apartment and the fridge is empty, I would take every job to earn money 🙂 - in the meantime looking for another 🙂

    Great post! You are right that in this way it is easy to fall into frustration, and then instead of developing and raising the bar, it's easy to give up and complain ...

    Very interesting post! In fact, I agree with the last paragraph 🙂 I have long adhered to the principle that when you are not looking for strength, the same will come ... I just give myself time and the situation finds a solution myself. Good luck in your new job, Dominiko - best regards 🙂

      It's true, sometimes it is worth waiting calmly and see what time will bring.
      Dear, in October we will defend ourselves, so we can spend more time writing an ebook. We are planning a premiere in mid-December, maybe faster 🙂

    Interesting article 🙂 I am starting the last year of study in a moment and probably I will slowly look around for work ... I tried to work in the hotel at the reception (according to my education), but I came to the conclusion that it was not my fairy tale.
    I have to admit that I'm afraid of this topic, because it is associated with a total change in life, so to speak - moving out, "own" apartment, work ... but everyone goes through it, right?

    + you wrote on my blog about a vegan cashew cheesecake with mango. I really like cheesecakes and cashews (mangoes too :)) would there be an option for you to share a recipe with me? 😉

      It is normal that you are afraid because you are changing something in your life. You are planning a move to another city or just moving out of your parents (as you understand, you live with your parents, right?).

      At the beginning, the most important thing is to gain experience. You will probably change your professional path more than once, because it all clears up with time and experience. For me, I worked mainly in the office (in various companies, including law publishing), but finally I decided that I want to have my own company and do something more creative. It took me a good few years to decide what I want to do.

      A cashew cheesecake recipe can be found here is delicious and simple 🙂

    I never had problems finding a job as I wanted to change it. I sent three CVs and received 3 invitations to interview. I got a job in a week. When I was looking for my first full-time job, I literally sent 2 emails and got a job at one of these companies. That's why I don't know how people do it, they look for a job for months.

      Wow great! It all depends on the industry, skills, education and unfortunately the place of residence.

  8. Avatar ArtDay 13 September 2016 / 17: 55

    In a year I change industries completely, I have not started yet and I have already fallen in love with what is ahead of me. The preparation for the grand opening gives me the greatest fun :)

      Cool! So I keep my fingers crossed 🙂 Maybe you will reveal what you will do? :>

  9. Avatar Ginger G 13 September 2016 / 11: 09

    It's best when work is combined with your passion 😉 unfortunately we rarely can choose it in this way

    • Avatar [Email protected] 13 September 2016 / 11: 58

      It depends on us. Everyone can create their own workplace, just like in my case 🙂

  10. Avatar Sun painted 12 September 2016 / 18: 30

    It's true that it's worth having your passions. Contrary to appearances, it matters to the employer.
    And for us. Because if we don't have our hobby then life becomes boring ...

    Fortunately, I have a job. But you can't really think about it all the time because you can be totally down.

    • Avatar [Email protected] 12 September 2016 / 17: 51

      You need to be able to separate work and private life. Although it is difficult to do it with your own company, especially at the beginning 🙂

  12. Avatar GumaDoZuciax3 12 September 2016 / 17: 18

    In my case it was the same when it comes to the relationship 🙂 As for work; everywhere I was looking for something under a contract of employment and nothing too bad - and when I quit I found it! Even today I thought about it 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 12 September 2016 / 17: 50

      Haha you see 😀 You are the next person to do this! 🙂

  13. Avatar Milena M. 12 September 2016 / 15: 40

    Advice useful, but on the other hand how much you can be without a job. You have to live on something 🙂

    • Avatar [Email protected] 12 September 2016 / 17: 56

      Of course you can't live without money, but believe me - sometimes it's not as hopeless as it seems. When I lost my job, I started to panic and search for anything by force. Really - I even applied to the seller or waitress (so that there is nothing I have nothing to do with these professions. They just don't quite match my chosen career path).

      I ended up losing time converting my CV and sending thousands of applications for offers that didn't interest me at all. I could devote this time to personal development and it was wasted.
