Bouncing Back After Being Laid Off

Bouncing Back After Being Laid Off

Develop a Plan

When you are ready to pick up the pieces and move on with your life, put together a game plan for your job search. It should include everything you will need to do while job hunting, along with some deadlines. Don’t just tuck this plan in a drawer. Pull it out and follow it. On days when you are feeling down, you will be surprised by how far you have actually come.

Who knows? One day you may thank your former employer for letting you go. Many people bounce back into jobs that are even better than the ones they left.
