7. Budgeting

You have to work with the little you have saved to keep going before getting another job.

We should accept our state of joblessness, mind our spending, work on our resumes and LinkedIn accounts and start applying for the new opportunities we find.

When we do so, we will finally get new jobs that will put smiles on our faces.

Take all this advice and run with it. If you keep yourself busy, don't give up hope, and take the time to care for yourself during this transitional period of your life, you will get through it!
