I received a call this week from one of our members who recently landed. She was very excited about her new role and was anxious to get back to work. Unemployment was something she had never expected. She had never been out of work before.
I asked her what was the most valuable thing that she had learned during her job search. After a very long pause, she said,
“I never thought there would be so many people who I would meet that were willing to help. I made a lot of new friends. They are great people who I would not have met if I had not been unemployed. I am going to be a much more helpful person in the future.”
That was an amazing statement. I thought about it for the rest of the day.
Reverend Billy Graham is credited with giving us this great quote “The Lord has given us two hands, one to receive with and the other to give with.”
What is the most valuable thing that you have learned during your job search?
Please let me know.
Everyone have a terrific week.
