When you’re unemployed and a person asks you what you do for work, you may almost feel a sense of guilt in saying you don’t have a job right now. But why is this the case? We’ve all been June, played at some stage, and it can happen to anyone, no matter how talented or ‘special’ they may be. Unemployment is real.

The job market moves fast. Opporuntities opens nd closein the link of an eye. Our thoght is why feel shame? There is nothing wrong, spiteful or careless about being unemployed. It’s not likely that you wished to lose your job. You didn’t control the business circumstances that created downsizing and a lack of opportunities. You don’t control the demand in the economy for your services or goods. Okay so you don’t have a job right now. Fine. That doesn’t take away from your many skills and talents.
