51. Laid Off...Now What?
If you have been laid off from your job, it can be a scary and stressful experience. It’s important to remember that there are steps you can take to get back on track and start working again. Here are some of the things I recommend doing after being laid off: -Reach out for help. Don’t hesitate to lean on your network of family, friends, former colleagues, or even potential employers for advice and support. -Take stock of your financial situation. Many people who experience layoffs struggle with financial issues afterward. Make sure you have enough money in an emergency fund, so you don’t fall into debt if something unexpected happens while looking for a new job. -Update your resume and get it out into the world. Make sure your resume looks professional, reflects relevant experience, and is tailored to the positions you are applying for. Use job search websites and apps to find new opportunities matching your skill set. You can also reach out directly to hiring managers or recruiters if you know anyone at a company you’re interested in working for. -Take advantage of any available resources. Some employers offer severance packages or other forms of assistance after lay-offs, so make sure you understand what you're entitled to as soon as possible. You may also qualify for government benefits such as unemployment insurance or training benefits while looking for a new job. -Take care of your mental health. Being laid off can be a traumatic experience, and it’s essential to take time to process the emotional impact of the layoff. Talk to a therapist or counselor if you need additional help dealing with the layoff and its aftermath. These are just some steps I recommend taking if you have been laid off from your job. By proactively seeking out help and staying positive, you will be able to find new opportunities and get back on track with your career.About Dr. Ryan Giffen: With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Ryan Giffen is an expert in human relations and business culture.
