Secret Santa For The Unemployed

If you are reading this, then you most likely know someone who is unemployed. And, if you’ve ever been unemployed yourself, then you know how hard it is mentally to deal with. Well, take how you felt and multiply it times ten to get a sense of what being unemployed feels like during the holidays. That’s because the season involves: Gift giving (a.k.a spending money). When you aren't working, every penny counts. Not being able to spend money on gifts is depressing. Going to parties. Socializing is something the unemployed tend to want to avoid. Mainly because they don’t want to have to answer questions like, “What do you do?” and “How’s the job search coming?” What is supposed to be a time of laughter and cheer is filled with shame and uncomfortableness. Less hiring. While seasonal hires for retail jobs goes up, actual hiring of full-time employees goes down. Which means, the likelihood of starting a new job and getting a paycheck during the holidays is slim. In short, being unemployed during the holidays makes it very tough to stay positive and motivated in a job search. But what if you could change that for someone? What if you could be the ULTIMATE Secret Santa? Well, you can. What an unemployed person needs right now is a resource and support center that can help them cope with their job search during the holidays. Our sister company, CareerHMO, is that resource. And for the next month, we are providing our programs at a discount so you can buy them and give them to someone in need of our help. Step 1: Visit our site and identify the Job Search Accelerator Plan (JSAP) you want to buy for the unemployed person in your life. Step 2: Send us an e-mail letting us know you want to buy a plan and we’ll send you a link to pay for it with a credit card. Step 3: We’ll work with you to send a "Welcome E-mail" on the date of your choice to let the person know they've been gifted a membership. It’s up to you whether you want us to tell them who bought it for them! This season, you could give a gift that could change the life of an unemployed person. Talk about a gift that keeps on giving!
