3 Ways to Build Back Confidence After Job Loss

Many will lose confidence and determination after losing a job. However, it is important to stay positive and proactive during this time. Building confidence will help you throughout your job search, as "Confidence is the key to finding a new job." (Jill Jacinto, millennial career coach).

1. Put together a portfolio of progress.

This is a good time to start your own portfolio. Review and reflect on your past achievements to build confidence and plan for greater growth.

2. Find (or become) a mentor.

Mentorship can motivate you to reset your goals for greater professional development and commitment. Mentoring others will instill accountability and self-esteem.

3. Gather up recommendations.

Strong recommendations can help you land a new job, and also provide valuable 3rd party insight into your core expertise, strengths, character, and work ethics.
