Re: right now I am....

I am sorry to hear that you and your boyfriend broke up @A_Friend Smiley Sad It is totally normally to take some time to let yourself feel sad. It is sweet to hear that you have some friends online and pets to keep you company. Sometimes the little things can help you get through each day. Breakups are really tough, look after yourself Heart If you feel that things are getting worse or if you would like to in general, you can always chat to a health professional about how you are feeling.

Re: right now I am....

Feeling very anxious about getting a job,I’ve been applying for jobs on seek & my employment agency is helping me also when i get a phone call about a job and talking to a employer for the first time makes me feel really nervous & I’m not really sure what to do...

Re: right now I am....

Hey @Love_elmo77 

Totally understandable to be feeling anxious about this, looking for work is a full on experience that forces us to put ourselves in a vulnerable space - and I think a lot of employers don't really respect that when they are doing interviews/phone calls. I always hated having to call up about a job, I would often write down what I was going to say first when they pick up and also write down a message to leave in case I got the voicemail, is that something that might help you?

 

I get that is harder to prepare for when they call you, I think when you answer the phone its totally reasonable to ask them to hold on for moment, then take a second to have a deep breath, go to a quiet place and grab a pen/pad/glass of water/a copy of your resume for reference/whatever you need to feel more comfortable to take the call, then you have a bit more control over the situation as well. Would that make things any less intense?

It's really tough when a potential employer calls up to do a screening interview and you've not had time to prepare at all. They will usually ask if now is a good time, and its totally fine to say sorry now is not the best time, could I call you back at (whatever time is better for you so you can have a little think/prepare what you might say)
