Why Get A Loan When You’re Unemployed?

  • Interview Clothes – It never hurts to overdress a little for an interview. It can definitely hurt to underdress. Think of your wardrobe as an investment for your next job and make sure it looks professional.
  • Hobby/Professional Development Classes – Hobby or professional development classes look great on a resume. It shows that you’re looking to improve yourself in your free time. Plus, it’s an opportunity to network!
  • Internet/Mobile Plans – You need to stay connected to hit up job contacts and browse job sites. You could use the internet at the library, but that’s not something you want to do too often – you have to sign up in a binder and the keyboards are gross.
  • Gym – Since you have some downtime, why not go to the gym? Employers love strong, healthy employees with good posture (and who don’t take too many sick days).
  • Moving expenses – If you really want a job, you have to check off that “I’m willing to relocate” box. Moving has its share of expenses though. A Magical Credit loan can help you get a new place for your new job.
