Maybe one of the worst things about looking for work is having to assess yourself over and over again. The longer it takes to find work, the more you have to look at yourself and the more likely you are to find yourself lacking as your lack of success in finding work seems to confirm. It is a cycle and not a nice one.
I am writing out an assessment of my employment history and my search for employment tonight. It is not fun. I think I would rather bungee jump off a very tall building and risk going splat at the end. But, here I am. We all have to do these happy little things now and then.
How do you figure out your own pros and cons? More than that, how do you do that without feeling like you want to crawl under a rock and hide from the world?
