How To Overcome Job-Search Depression

Job hunting can be difficult during the best of times, and a tough job market makes it even more challenging. When you are let go and have struggled to secure a new job, it is natural to feel anxious, afraid, and depressed. Repeated rejections and constant uncertainty can take a toll on your emotional well-being. 
It is important to maintain a positive mindset, take care of your physical and emotional health, seek social support, and focus on what you can control. Signs of job-search depression include lack of motivation to apply for new roles, a belief that interviews are a waste of time, and feeling defeated and worthless. 
If you are feeling fatigued, socially withdrawn, and ruminating over negative thoughts, it is time to talk with someone. Constant rejection makes it hard to remain confident and upbeat, and it is understandable to feel overwhelmed. It is essential to improve your résumé and LinkedIn profile, consult with a career coach, and practice an elevator pitch. 
Focus on the present and take the time to remind yourself of your great qualities and achievements. With the right tools and mindset it won't be long before you land that perfect job.
