What you'll learn:
Everyone knows unemployment is a difficult situation, especially when it drags on for months, even years. Do you know how to help a friend navigate through this stressful time of life—What to say, what to do? This short booklet (with more than 50 strategies) suggests practical ways to:
- Support your friend's job search
- Minimize the expense of socializing: Organize friends in ways that are free (or low cost) and fun.
- Help your friend cope with the uncertainty and worry.
- Encourage without criticizing.
With strategies, suggestions and conversation guides, Between Jobs: Ten Ways to Help a Friend Who's Unemployed outlines how to make the crisis more bearable. You can help in practical ways—without hurting a friend's pride. But even more important, you can show real understanding when your friend feels discouraged. Joblessness won't last. Gratefulness for your comfort and compassion will.
