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.
