Having a job can help us feel a sense of achievement, give us a feeling of belonging and connect us to others, while providing necessary financial security to be able to live comfortably.
Being out of work can affect our sense of identity and purpose, cause money worries and may make it difficult to maintain self-confidence. Equally, if you are struggling in the workplace due to mental health issues, it is important to be able to seek help and support for this.
The world of work can be extremely stressful, be it missing out on a desired opportunity and dealing with the rejection and knocking your confidence to feeling stuck in a rut not enjoying your current job role.
The University Careers Service is here to give you guidance and support for any career related issues or worries.
