The slow economy has left its mark on all of us. Across the state of New Jersey where there has been a reported increase this year in unemployment-related stress, that’s reason enough for workers to seek help when navigating today’s difficult business environment.
Whether you’re working to strengthen your skills and adapt to an ever-changing workplace environment, or trying to manage the stress that comes from added responsibilities on the job or while seeking a new one, today’s professional is in tough situation.
According to an article in New Jersey Business, 6.7 million Americans have been out of work for at least six months – the highest percentage recorded since 1948. In New Jersey, those numbers don’t seem to be improving fast enough.
Even the former mayor of Hillborough, Tony Gwaizdowski, was profiled for working full time to get a job. When the outlook is bleakest, it can be tough to access the confidence and self-assurance necessary to move your career to the next level.
Professional development courses, like those at Dale Carnegie of Central & Southern New Jersey, are a great option for managing stress and gaining problem-solving skills and communications strategies that work both at work and in life.
