Do You Know Someone Who is Out of Work?

Do you know someone who is out of work? Take them out for some coffee and conversation. Introduce them to someone new. Let them know that you are there for support if needed. They do need get off the computer occasionally, get out of their houses, and talk to people who are not in the world of job searching, desperation, and depression, but rather are caring and listening.

You don’t always have to give them a network connection but if they ask, do so. Think about the times you met with coworkers and other employed friends and the pleasure you got from your interaction. Many unemployed have been disconnected from that resource and need to be offered that opportunity. You may be there at some point in your life.
