Nearly 15 percent reported happiness levels that were gradually improving before losing their jobs. After the job loss, happiness dipped for this group but then rose again and returned to the pre-unemployment level.

"I have worked with many clients who have done quite well after a layoff and change, often radical, in their career paths," Chope said.
