What’s My Next Step?

If you have a job lined up: If you already have another job lined up, this question is pretty easy to answer. You just need to figure out how much notice to give and how long you’ll take off before starting the next job. Make the transition as seamless as possible.

If you don’t have a job: But if you do not have another job, you need to have a clear plan of what to do after you are unemployed. Look into how to apply for unemployment. Have a goal in mind and set out a timeline to achieve that goal, whether it be finding another job, freelancing, or going back to school. Make sure the timeline takes into account all the details about deadlines, expenses, and other minor details. Thinking about the details will help you make a more informed decision.
