Stress Management in the Job Search

We as career counselors have assisted many clients in their job search and know how stressful this process can be for the client; especially if it has been continuing on for a while. It is important for us to help our clients deal with and reduce this stress so they can continue to be motivated in their job search. Research has shown that keeping a positive attitude and setting smaller goals can help eliminate stress and make the job hunt that much easier. This RoundTable will specifically focus on the stresses that are caused by the job search and how you can help your clients manage them.
