School While On Unemployment

101 16
Never give up. It may seem like an eternity, and in the beginning it may be very relaxing to not have any responsibilities, but it will get old very quickly. It is important to keep busy, it will help you not only keep your mind off of money, but will pass the time easier until you receive that phone call from your next potential employer. After a month or so you should have adjusted to the pay decrease and as long as you are actively looking for employment and keep reporting in every week or two those checks will keep coming in the mail for up to about a year, this also varies state to state.

One thing that a lot of people overlook is to take your unemployment as an opportunity to better yourself and advance your last career. Either by getting that dream job you have always wanted or going to school and finishing that degree. You are more likely to get a higher paying job with a degree. Now I know that money is tight but there are many opportunities out there to help with schooling. Check out your local community colleges and look into government grants and loans. Speak with a representative of those colleges and see what they offer for those who are unemployed, you will be surprised to find out that it is very practical and affordable to go to school while unemployed, and that will give you the edge to land that next job.
