Job Search Emotional Curve

Job Search is like riding a Roller coaster. The different phases of this ride are expected and can be handled if you work thru it.

Emotional Curve of Career Transition

The most important think you can do is know where you are on this ride. Being in one of the valleys of Shock, Anger or Depression is not necessarily a bad thing, if you know you are there and that you have ideas, activities and/or plans to move you back up the hill.

One way to navigate this roller coaster is to talk with others about where you are and how you feel. When you are not able to vocalize how you feel, write. Writing down you feelings, fears and what you want to do is a great stress reliever and idea machine.

What other ways have you dealt with the roller coaster ride of job search.
