I don't know about you, but if I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, "I’m stressed," I would probably be a millionaire. And if I were a millionaire, I would not be searching for a job. Unfortunately for us, we are not benefiting financially from the stress of others, which is why we are job searching. Stress is a human reaction that happens to everyone. It's our body’s way of responding to a challenge or demand. College students and recent graduates are especially vulnerable to substantial amounts of stress because of the emergence of new experiences and situations, such as the job search process.

In this post, I will discuss what stress is and the effects it has on your body, explain the importance of stress management and provide eight suggestions on how to overcome stress you may face during the job search process.
