Depression & The Job Search
Great synopsis by Suzannah Scully (Yahoo! Contributor Network, March 21, 2011) on a presentation by Richard Bolles, author of What Color is Your Parachute. He presents the two types of depression, situational and clinical; and how situational depression can be brought on during a trying time in one’s life. Situational depression is temporary, and there are things one can do to alleviate it.
“While searching for a new job can be exciting, it can also be lengthy, arduous and frustrating.” Bolles breaks down the experience of depression into four parts – Physical, Emotional, Mental and Spiritual — and provides advice on how to overcome each.
