Try! A Survival Guide to Unemployment.
Okulicz, Karen
This book is a practical survival guide to unemployment that offers a thoughtful, step-by-step process for getting organized and getting the work one needs for a satisfying, productive, and happy life. It does not teach the reader how to set up a resume or how to interview. It does teach how to find out what the reader wants to do, what he or she wants to be, and how to survive some basic aspects of unemployment pitfalls. It also gives tips on how to set up the work search process. Eleven chapters cover the following topics: fault and unemployment; how to spend one's free time; emotional release and remaining positive; listening patiently to other people's advice; deciding what one wants to do--a job, a career, or a life's work; making a personal wish list about oneself for employment hunting; trying different jobs, especially volunteer opportunities; organizing a grid that tracks activities on a weekly basis; saving as much money as possible; dealing with interviewing disasters; and being kind to oneself and using the time to learn about oneself.
