How During, the job search I feel like we're getting more and more of these phone calls in it's not a surprise to me in fact I remember when the covert. Suppression hit and we saw the unemployment numbers explode. I really began to feel a tremendous amount of empathy for all the people that are being affected by this and I'm going Oh my gosh, this is going to be tough. Because it's already tough. In the best of times when you lose a job. I would put it up there as outside of the loss of a loved one or friend. And a physical debilitating challenge. I'd put it up there number three behind those two as the most traumatic things that happened to us in our life. Using a throw a, you know a break up or something like that. That's pretty bad. So I. Begin to think Oh man this is gonna be tough because it's already a real loss in a rule sting but now to get back on the horse to get back in, it's going to be harder in these times. and. So we've gotten a lot of these phone calls and today I just wanted to address three actions. I mean. There's several things you could do.
