The job search process can be lonely and isolating, and the job search process can be a confidence killer. If you are feeling “stuck” in your job search, a licensed therapist can be a very vital resource for a number of reasons.
In these cases a licensed therapist can help job seekers develop their self-confidence, and believe in themselves and their abilities.
- They can help you identify and address any underlying issues that may be affecting your job search. For example, if you are struggling with anxiety or depression, a therapist can help you develop coping mechanisms and strategies for managing these conditions. This can make a big difference in your ability to focus on your job search and present yourself in a positive light to potential employers.
- A therapist can also help you cope with the frequent periods of stress and anxiety, that may come from poor results or a non-supportive environment, and help you stay motivated and positive.
