Almost every episode on Career Cloud Radio leaves you with practical advice on how to successfully gain employment. But if you’re too tired, or you can’t focus enough to execute the strategies you’ve learned, what good is the advice?
If you’re searching for a job, you’re either out of work, or not happy where you are currently. Many people are experiencing the same dilemmas and frustrations. So if you take away nothing else from this episode, know that you’re not alone. The bad news is that, whether you like it or not, the constant thoughts, fears, and doubts associated with gaining employment will stack the deck against you over time. They crop up, and slow you down. Sprinkle in a global pandemic, and you’ve got a horrendous period in history that is exponentially worse for job seekers.
The good news is that there are ways to cope, which is precisely why we wanted to have Tara on the show. Her background aligns perfectly for this topic and if you listen, you will leave with a much better understanding of what you’re experiencing and what you can do to feel better.
The first six minutes of this episode are a preface by Justin reflecting on how your well being is being affected by the pandemic and an introduction to Tara’s article which this recording focuses on: Your ‘Surge Capacity’ Is Depleted - It’s Why You Feel Awful.
