We see that it’s tough to be struggling through a career crisis on your own, so being a good friend at times like these is so important as well. We know that said, figuring out what their friend needs from them during a time like this is easier said than done. We must keep these best practices in mind, to be the best possible friend as well. They must tap into empathy, not sympathy to grow as well. We see that it has a great little bit about the difference between empathy versus sympathy, as well that underscores the importance of feeling with people – not for them as well. Students can make use of the best software for online teaching or the best app to teach online and learn a skill to find a job. We know that the bottom line is that when they are struggling, they don’t want anyone’s pity, they simply want to be seen and validated and truly felt heard as well.
We see that to be a good friend, in this case, requires them to tap into a part of their life when they felt the same lousy way their friend is now. We see that they resist the temptation to just cheer them up as well. We see that when they are feeling with others means sitting in discomfort with them, they can mirror back the feelings they’re struggling with, as well as work on validating their experience by reminding them how perfectly reasonable their feelings are at the same time. We know that it’s tempting to jump right into a problem-solving mode as well (especially if they are naturally inclined to give advice freely as well). We know that to be sure to ask before jumping into advice-giving as well. Sometimes we see that their friend will be ready and waiting for someone to help troubleshoot the situation as well. But we see that often after hitting a career roadblock, people need some time to wallow – and that’s ok at all! We see that if they get the sense that their friend is ready to take the next step as well as regain a sense of agency as well as control over their careers, tell them they are here to help. They might say, that when they are ready to kick-start their job search, as well they will be the first to review their resume with them as well as connect them to some contacts in the industry, but until them as well. We see that sometimes when facing down failure, there’s something to learn from it as well. We know that maybe by getting passed over for this promotion, they are reminded of how important it is to take initiative in seeking those kinds of opportunities out instead of waiting for their hard work to be noticed and rewards. We see that often, life just isn’t fair as well. We see that most times injustice happens. They can “play by the rules,” as well as do everything right, and things still might not shake out fairly as well.
We see that when that’s the case, it’s important to help their friend see the injustice for what it is so she doesn’t overcorrect as well. We see that help her parse through the system to uncover any key learnings that might help her moving forward, and then remind her it’s not about being perfect, it’s about doing her best as well. We see that they can offer to review their friend’s resume as well. But don’t just check for typos as well but they must really make sure each and every bullet point is sending the right message and selling him or her as the best person for the job at the same time. We see that the five-step resume-editing process is something that will cover all of their bases.we see that when a person search their friend as well particularly if there’s anything that might be off-putting to a hiring manager as well. We see that when they google results can be slightly different from person to person, so they might find something he or she hasn’t.
