Lost Your Job? - Get Out And Network


As a child, did you ever get lost?  When I was about 5 years old I got lost at Jones Beach and couldn’t find my way back to my parents.  It was terrifying.  I thought I would never find them in the sea of beach umbrellas and blankets, but I did. 

Losing a job can be devastating and make a person feel they’ve lost their way.  If you’re currently out of work does this feeling sound familiar to you?  I bet if you ask anyone who has lost their job they would agree they have felt the same way at one point.  I have been in this place myself (more times than I care to count) and learned that the best remedy is to get out amongst the living and network.  You don’t have to feel as alone and lost as I did as that little girl on the beach.

  1. Hi Laura,

    Great advice as usual. Funny, I was lost at Jones Beach too! I still feel lost most of the time, but at least I network in the meantime.

  2. Susan,

    I'm sure you must be a great therapist but you could be a stand up comic if you ever get tired of delving into people's heads!
