    Getting a job during Covid

    Getting a job during Covid

    In this solo episode I share my experience of finding a job during Covid. When I lost my first lawyer role in March due to Covid, I really struggled to feel like myself again. The uncertainty of the world didn't help, especially when it comes to the job market. However, there are still some things we can all control – we can believe in ourselves and our abilities, we can continue to have hope and not give up and we can keep putting ourselves out there! I wanted to share my story of losing my job, what I did with my spare time, how I dealt with rejection, how I kept positive and all of the things I did to find a new job in the hope that it might help others. If you are still looking for work – I hope this helps to inspire you and please remember one thing – just don’t give up!
