I am facing pressure from family

I am unemployed for the last two months. As my family has a loan, they are scolding me and putting pressure on me. Please help.

Dear Sandeep,

Pressure from family is quite normal. I suggest that you have a chat with them and explain to them that you are searching for a job. There is nothing that you can do about the situation. As a family, you need to stand together in these tough times and look for viable alternatives that can be a source of income.

Based on your skills and experience, do you think you can opt for some freelance projects? Take up a temporary assignment. There are a lot of freelancer websites like guru.com, elance.com, odesk.com. If you enjoy teaching, you can do that as well in spare time. This will also help destress you.

For job search tips and guidance, I suggest you read my blog using the two links below on Fixer Talk:
