If you are unfortunate enough to be made redundant or find yourself without a job, a sense of panic can set in quite quickly.
So many people feel that being out of work marks them down as unemployable. It doesn’t, even at the height of the boom when it is difficult to imagine why people would be out of work, there are plenty of employers needing people and very few around.
In the current situation, however, nobody is going to blame an individual who finds themselves on the wrong side of coronavirus.
Now we know that some employers in more normal times will rather lazily assume anyone out of work as partly to blame, but today unemployment is on the rise and your individual circumstances are simply not unusual.
The only way that it can possibly affect your future employment prospects is if it matters to you. If you feel it is a problem, then that will come across to employers. But if you think that your situation is no different to many others and it is not something to dwell on, then it will not influence your chances.
So rather than concentrate on your present predicament, concentrate instead on a targeted job search, a properly prepared CV and understanding how to interview properly, especially online. Those things will make a big difference.
