The caller advised that she had been out of work for “a while” and needed some direction as she had no idea what to do. So, what can you do to help me, she queried? I can do this, this, this, this and this to help you, I explained. She replied: “That sounds like a lot of hard work.” Looking for a job: hard work. Putting the pieces back together after job loss: hard work. Figuring out what to do next: hard work. Knowing yourself: hard work.
