How do you cope with job loss amidst Covid19?. The last few months have witnessed massive layoffs. Companies are continuously downsizing and hanging onto thin threads to stay afloat.
Entrepreneurs are not left out as businesses are struggling to survive.
However, one major group gets to bear the brunt of all these problems; the employees.
A lot of them have lost their jobs and for those who haven’t, their fates hang in the balance.
It doesn’t matter what form your job loss came in, truth is, you are not alone.
Here are a few things you can do:
Consider this a temporary setback and don’t beat yourself up about it. No one saw this coming.
Stay close to your family at this time. You shouldn’t be alone. Communicate with people as often as you can.
Start Networking immediately: The post-COVID-19 situation will be highly digitized. Position yourself now.
Draw attention to your skills. Show people what you can do. Maximize platforms such as #LinkedIn to stay relevant.
Upskill as much as you can. The competition after this time would be cutthroat. Especially for #jobseekers. Learn!
Eat well, exercise, and keep yourself entertained.
Lastly, pray and have faith. This too will pass!!!
