There are many words that we could use to describe the current situation that has unfolded around us. Unprecedented is definitely in our top five.
The number of people who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic is astronomical. Not just those who have contracted or fallen victim to the virus, but others who have lost their job as a result. We have seen a significant increase in the number of LinkedIn messages and connection requests received from recruiters who are now out of work. This is a stark contrast to what is usually a real candidate short market.

They might be fortunate enough to have kept their job, but they have still gone through a rollercoaster of emotions including stress, anxiety, sadness and anger. They may also feel guilt, and question why they have been saved and others haven’t. Perhaps the worst feeling of all and the most damaging is questioning whether they are next. All of these emotions are products of survivor syndrome, and they’re more common than you think.
Why does being lucky make you feel so bad? You’re not the only person who is thinking this. We are humans after all, and it’s completely normal to feel the pain that others are experiencing. But you should try not to let this impact you too much or disrupt your day-to-day life. There are a few things that you can do to help navigate through this tough time:
