Deal with Changes

Transitions in life can be stressful. The information here can help you with work changes to lower the stress.

Job security is not certain in this new world of work. You may lose your job through no fault of your own, or with little or no warning. Other life events like losing a loved one, a growing family, or having to move to a new city can cause a lot of stress and affect your career.

You may have things in your life that you are not sure how to handle. Support services can help you with child care, health care, transportation, and other needs. It's a good thing that you do not have to face these changes alone. There are many resources available to help you.

Your librarian or career coach may be able to help you find these services.

  • Find services for the recently unemployed.
  • Get immediate help from employment and training resources.
  • Join employment programs that fit your unique needs.
  • Learn ways to stay emotionally and physically healthy during a job transition.
