Looking for a new job can be a stressful experience, especially if you don’t already have a job. I remember those days all too well. When my son was three, I split up with his dad. I had no job, no income coming in at all and a child to care for on my own. I spent every waking moment trying to find a job, finally landing one that didn’t even pay enough to cover daycare expenses.
After six months of filling out hundreds of applications and getting no where, I decided to be brave, dive in and use my one skill-writing-to make a career for myself. It was a scary decision, as freelance writing is one of the toughest fields to succeed in. Thankfully it worked out for me and I’m doing okay now. I know far too many people who are still struggling to find any job, let alone a good one.
Even if you already have a job, there are important financial considerations to consider when looking for a new one. Like, what if you have to take a pay cut at first to get in the door to a potentially great career change? How much can you afford to give up each month and still survive? How much do you need to put aside in case you’ll be out of work for a while? You can find these tips and more in the BMO Harris Bank Scavenger Hunt Sweepstakes!
