What Happens After You Lose Unemployment Benefits?
Posted Sep 04 2009 10:46am
In 2006 after quitting my job, I applied for unemployment from a job that I had 17 years vested in. I was unable to collect because I could not work part time at that time. Instead over the past 3 years I have been doing nothing…… Nothing up until now. When I did work, I would always say this “When I retire, I want to be a _________.” I will let you know what the answer is in a future blog. I have been preparing for my return to work in the work force. Instead of sitting around and feeling sorry for myself, every day I go out and make contact with people. I do this so that I do not lose my people skills. My labor and delivery skills are still there. But they are gathering cobwebs. On September 11, 2009, I will be making my comeback as something brand new….. I will be a volunteer labor doula at a local hospital. If you are a woman, may I make a suggestion to you. Check and see if your area has labor doulas. If they do you need to check out how to become one. It is simple…… No matter what the job you are seeking, you need to research it before you apply for the job. Ask questions. Talk to people who work for the company. Find out the companies mission statement. Know the company. Live the company. Breathe the company. Experience the company. For me….. I have been walking through my next job every other day. I walk the isles. I ask questions. I smile. I touch. I feel. I experience the job that I will be at next. I recently asked someone at this place….How long does it take to hear if you have gotten the job? The response will be one month. Next week will be one month. I have to admit it has been the only job I have applied for since I left my nursing job. This is my dream job…..it is what I want to be when I retire. I know that this job is coming into my life because I know THE SECRET. Do you? If you want anything in life…..You have to make it happen. Now it is your turn to go out there and find your dream job.
