The holiday season is a time that is nearly almost good for nothing for those who are unemployed. It’s an added level of stress, hoping to find out if you’ll be able to give your family the Thanksgiving meal they deserve, or the presents that your children have been begging for. With Thanksgiving just behind us, unemployed Americans, and those around the world, surely might not be too focused on what they have to be thankful for.
An added problem to the holiday season is that outside of seasonal hiring, full-time hiring usually plummets. Most organizations are taking this time to reevaluate their books, and not looking to add another salary expense until the figures take shape for the New Year.
Most blogs around this time of year are going to try and preach to you, and try and tell you what you should be thankful for. They’ll spit clichés like; family, friends, health, well-being, happiness, etc… Now, don’t get me wrong, these are great things to have, things we hope all of you are lucky to have in your lives. But you know that you should be thankful for those things, you don’t need words on a website with an HTML skeleton to tell you that.
We will simply take this blog to wish you the best of luck this holiday season and hoping you find what truly makes YOU thankful. We can’t tell you what to be thankful for, but we can surely wish you the best of luck in finding whatever it is. And if you can’t seem to put anything together, don’t fret.
As they say, the grass is always greener on the other side, and nothing signifies a fresh start like the coming of a New Year. We hope that 2014 will be a bring brighter days for all.
Enjoy your holidays, eat well on your Thanksgiving, and don’t be afraid to reach out to friends and neighbors who you believe may be in need.
