Overcoming fear

 

Take some time to identify the things that you fear. Is it rejection by an employer? Is it failure in your job?

What will happen if your fears come true? Will you be able to continue on with your plans and your life?

Try to understand that worrying seldom helps. Instead of worrying, gather information about the thing you fear and ask others to help you to try to meet the challenge.

Speak with your employment counsellor about your fears. She/he can help you address and overcome these fears with specific strategies.

Read books about job searching and learn how many of the experiences and feelings that you have are common among people who are job seeking.

Believe in yourself and know that you can succeed!
