Mental Health and Job Hunting

What do mental health and job hunting have in common? According to a new study and as pointed out by The Wall Street Journal, mental health actually improved three months after becoming unemployed.

Why am I sharing this? Because I recently became unemployed and since day one have sought out the positives in the situation despite the initial shock. I wholeheartedly believe that if I remain positive, good things will happen. The timing of this brief article, which popped up in my inbox from Mediabistro, couldn’t have come at a more appropriate time.

Those of you who know me may also know that I began my career just two days after I graduated college — and that’s only because I was stuck in a Western Pennsylvania snow storm and couldn’t safely drive home for my official first day. For me, my career has always been immensely important.

That being said, at this current moment, I’m truly thankful for the opportunity to use this time to find myself and, fingers crossed, to find my dream job here in NYC. I may have a different story four months down the road, but for now I’m taking it one day at a time.
