One of the worst parts about losing a job, aside from the substantial loss of money, is that feeling of hopelessness, futility, and utter failure. In fact, losing a job is a lot like getting a divorce. The only difference is that, after a divorce, your therapist will tell you to wait a month for every year you were married before you start dating. When you lose a job, you've got to hit that pavement right away and look for a new job (there are bills to pay). But there are ways of combating feelings of depression and defeat; there are ways to lift yourself back up again. Because, just as the rank smell of desperation can send potential dates scampering away, it'll certainly do you no favors in the interview room.
