Networking and business cards. Cover letters and resumes. Applications and interviews. It all adds up to the same thing — job hunting.
If any of these concepts, say networking or interviewing, make your hair stand on end, you’re in good company. According to a 2013 study, 92 percent of Americans fear at least one part of the job interview process, whether that’s having the jitters, showing up late for the interview, or not knowing how to answer difficult questions. This doesn’t even cover the nail-biting anxiety of waiting for a return email or phone call after you’ve sent off yet another application or completed an interview.
Combine the normal job search stress with a mental health issue, and the task may seem impossible.
