How to keep a smile and a sense of humor when it comes to the jobs that matter

In the midst of a recession and the uncertainty of an uncertain future, many Canadians are looking for ways to stay positive.

“There’s definitely a lot of fear that we’re going to lose our jobs,” says Sarah, a recent graduate of the University of Guelph.

“And I’m just trying to find ways to take advantage of the opportunities that are there.”

She is currently on a job hunt for a role in a high-tech company in downtown Toronto.

“I’m kind of scared to go into that role, because I’m so anxious to get back to school, to get a job, get a degree,” she says.

“It’s just so hard to be anxious about what’s going to happen.”

Sarah’s fear of going back to work is understandable.

Statistics Canada’s latest unemployment rate, published earlier this week, found that Canadians were more likely to be unemployed when they were just starting out their careers than when they had worked for more than six years.

The number of Canadians who are looking to find a job that offers steady income is growing, but with so many factors working against them, it can be difficult to know where to start.

“We don’t know exactly where we’re at,” says Tracey, a 25-year-old university student from Vancouver.

Tracey’s resume is filled with accomplishments, but it also includes some struggles: “There was one particular time when I went on a flight and I thought it was going to be fine.

I thought that was just the flight attendant, it was a random passenger.

I had to be careful because I had a lot on my plate and I had my phone in my hand.

I didn’t have enough time to call a coworker.”

Tracey says she was so scared when she first landed at the airport that she made a point of asking everyone to stop by her hotel room to give her a hug.

She says she tried to tell them that she had no idea what she was going through.

“They were like, ‘Well, you just need to relax, just try to be yourself,'” Tracey recalls.

Trish, another recent graduate from the University.

Trisch says she’s now trying to make ends meet by working at a daycare center and volunteering at a homeless shelter.

“Just getting through the day with the kids, it’s not easy,” she said.

“People don’t understand what it’s like to be a working mom, a working person, just being a mom.”

For some Canadians, the situation is even more dire.

Many of the people who have lost their jobs or are at risk of losing them due to the recession are struggling to pay bills and keep their home.

“If you’re a person who is in a precarious situation, it means you’re at risk,” says Lisa, a 35-year old from Edmonton.

Lisa has been on the job hunt since the beginning of the year.

“You know you’re not going to get another one.

It’s hard to find another one,” she explains.

“So I’m hoping that my kids will understand what that means.”

Lisa says she is frustrated with the job market, with the lack of support available to those in need.

“A lot of people don’t realize how desperate they are right now,” she adds.

Lisa’s experiences are common. “

When I’m really desperate, I just feel like I’m being selfish, and that I’m getting away with it.”

Lisa’s experiences are common.

“Most of my friends and family are unemployed,” says Vanessa, a 29-year person from Montreal.

“That’s really frustrating.

It really hurts.”

Vanessa says she went on unemployment in March after working for a company for two years.

Vanessa says that she worked for a few months at a company that was looking for someone to replace her.

“The people that were really looking for me were really, really good people,” she recalls.

Vanessa found a position at the same company where she was hired for a position that paid $16 an hour.

Vanessa’s experience was not unique.

More than three in five Canadians are struggling with an unstable income, according to Statistics Canada.

For many of these people, it is hard to stay afloat.

“Many people don-know what it means to be in a crisis,” says Jessica, a 30-year former nurse from Ottawa.

Jessica says she feels like she is a victim of her own circumstances.

She is one of about 40,000 people who received a job offer for the summer after graduating from nursing school.

“Because of the recession, I was offered a job in the summer, which is something that is so difficult for a lot people,” Jessica says.

Jessica’s experience isn’t unique.

“In general, people are very scared to apply for jobs,” Jessica explains.

Jessica is not alone
