When Covid-19 first was announced earlier this year, many of us had no idea how it would impact our lives in the future months, including what age groups would be at risk. As time passed it was discovered that the elderly faced a significant risk of developing the illness, particularly those with underlying health conditions.

Most job seekers don’t realize that they have the same amount of time that they had before. They work an 8-hour work day, sometimes 9 or 10, and are still required to run a household! Laundry, washing dishes, grocery shopping, cooking, household chores, dropping off and picking up kids from school, exercising and sitting in traffic (my favorite). Some people even find time to watch their favorite TV shows. How is that possible when life is hectic and our jobs take up so much of our day? Continue reading “Unemployed? Nope! You still have a job!”
