Jessica Miller-Merrell has been there. “Where”, you ask? Where many of you are quite possibly right now: in the thick of an unpromising job search.
On her blog, Blogging4jobs.com, Jessica shares the story of her husband’s unexpected job loss right before the birth of their first baby. She talks about the worry. The planning. The frustration of doing everything “right”, but not getting results. Not to mention other personal tragedies that made a hard situation feel almost impossible.
Hearing her family’s career transition story reminded me of my own (which you can read via this blog entry from last year). And it also reminded me just how powerful hearing someone else’s inspiring story can be. Just knowing that another person has felt what you’re feeling makes you feel less isolated, plus gives you hope because you know that they had a happy ending…which means you can, too.
I highly recommend you read Jessica’s story here, and let me know which parts of it resonate most with you!
