One of the questions was a simple one:
“Are there any comments/guidance/advice you’d like to know at this stage?”
One reply stood out. It simply said:
“Can we talk?”
We received over 200 replies yesterday, and it would have been easy to say “I’m too busy”.
I called them.
The person is not OK. They are far from OK. We spoke for nearly two hours.
It was an unplanned, and unscheduled call. I missed commitments; I didn’t hit a deadline.
But that’s OK. Because in those two hours we helped one person.
And that’s life in 2020 – one person at a time, one day at a time, one job application at a time.
And today, we go again. We learned some more about this situation.
After that call, I cried.
And that’s OK too. But they felt better, we discussed new ideas, new ways to help them.
They felt better. That’s a win, right?
If you don’t feel ok, then please, go talk to someone.
If you need help with your job search, we can be here for you too.
