Virtual Job Club Day 12: How Are You Helping Others?
I know, I know…you’re the one who needs the help, so who has time to devote to others? I get it. I also know that assisting others serves two huge purposes, both of which can be positively self-serving.
First, when you give your time and talent to someone else, you often discover something new about yourself. Or you reinforce something you sorta knew was there, but now are sure of it.
Second, helping others takes the focus off you and your challenges while allowing you to tap your incredible brainpower. It lifts your spirits when you’re down. And that feel-good boost can rub off in improved self-esteem and confidence — the kind that are needed to weather tough times.
So two things:
1) Troll through the blog posts from Days 1 – 11 and post responses to the questions, comments and concerns of others. You may be going through a similar challenge — and while you don’t have answers for yourself, I bet you have smart ideas for other women.
2) Tell us here about your volunteer initiatives — the stuff you wish an employer would stand up and take note of right now.
