Great. You’ve Just Lost Your Job. Now What?
Keep Your Cool.
Keeping a positive relationship with the company that just let you go is crucial. Losing your temper could cost you a future position or a positive recommendation.
Realize Your Opportunity
Take the time to assess your strengths, talents, hopes and goals. It could be the time to make a career change now that the job you lost isn’t holding you back.
Focus On Your Best Qualities
Focus on your best qualities that make you a valuable person and a future employee. Don’t take the layoff personally as it’s often a business decision and not based on your performance.
Make A Decision And Move Forward.
Once you’ve decided how you want to move forward, engage, research and do what it takes to to achieve this goal. It can be tempting after being rejected to hide away in one’s own safe home, but it is in the bright light of day that your path will be visible to you.
