7 Ways to Pass the Time While You're Unemployed That Might Just Help You Find a Job Too ...

Finding yourself unemployed can be incredibly hard, and spending two years unemployed myself, I know what it's like to try to find something to do to pass the time while you're unemployed to make yourself feel productive. Being without a job can take away your self esteem, and also be a burden financially, of course. Coming out of college with tons of debt and insecurity during the beginning of my unemployment was excruciating, but I learned many things along the way. I thought it would be nice to share some helpful things to do to pass the time while you're unemployed, since I know many other people deal with this issue too. If you've ever been without a job, feel free to share your advice with me!

1. Look for a Job

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Obviously, one of the best ways to pass the time while you're unemployed is the best one to start with. Look for a job, and look for one everywhere, not just on your computer. Get out and apply at physical places, and don't be afraid to apply at places you might not normally consider. I had to work several jobs I didn't really want to, or that were below the skills I had after college graduation, but who cares? At least I had an income! Temp jobs are also fine, so apply for those too. You can also get on Craigslist, LinkedIn, and several other online sites that allow you to post resumes, pictures and look for jobs in special areas. These are a great place to start, but don't be afraid to get out physically and look for one too!
