In such a struggling economy, what is one to do about getting a new job? Losing your job can be devastating nowadays. Finding a new one that pays the same or even half as much is something you would have to be extremely lucky for. You could always find an odd job using piano moving equipment but your first week’s salary probably would not be enough to buy a piano moving dolly. If you do not quite think playing with piano wheels is the route for you, then you may be less than satisfied with such a solution. So the question remains as to what you should do when you need a new job. Waiting around for one just as good as your old one probably is not a good idea, but who wants to settle for a lesser paying less good job? Here is some advice on how to deal with this situation, and what to do.
First of all, you have to remember that this too will pass. Everything is temporary and will turn good once again in time. It is a transitional period in which you might have to do some soul- searching and find a new way to work for you. What used to be your thing or make you happy might not be what is best for you anymore. Being uncomfortable usually pushes you to learn something about yourself. You might think this is the end of the world, but you will survive it in the end and it will even make you stronger.
You will need to make some sacrifices for sure in able to get something as good as you did. You may need to open up to the idea of relocating or going back to school. If you are too picky you will never find anything. Sadly, you usually have to lose a lot before you can begin gaining again. Hopefully it will all be worth it in the end though and you will be just as happy as you once were.
There are certain jobs now that are in more demand than before. You might want to consider going back to school for a pharmacists assistant position. They are in high demand and you can get a quick degree for it. You will make a decent salary. Nursing is also a similar thing, but now the waiting lists for nursing school are very long. It might be a few months to years before you can get yourself into a nursing program. If you can get by on a side job for the time being, than it is still a good idea.
However, if you need a job right away this probably is not the best idea for you? In the end if you are ready to make the transitions and humble yourself a bit, there is no doubt you can persevere. It may be rough and you may not like to look back on it, but you can always get through. Do not hesitate to ask for help or go out on a limb or two. It takes real motivation to come back from losing a job.
