How To Get The Perfect Job
You've just been made Redundant
Redundancy. In other words you're sacked, you're fired, you've been outsourced, downsized, booted out, let go, redeployed, restructured.
You might be in despair, sick with worry, panicked, depressed, outraged and feeling beaten down.
Or you might feel set free, released, full of promise, anything goes and be relishing an unexpected opportunity.
One of the most important things around being made redundant is that whatever you are feeling is totally valid.
If you feel dreadful it doesn't matter how many friends and family tell you to cheer up, what a great opportunity, blah blah blah; or if you're over the moon, you don't need to put on a long face to fit in with whatever other people think you ought to be feeling.
Not only that, you might be down in the dumps one day, with your self-esteem at rock bottom and the next day or week feel excited at the choices you now have.
So feelings need to be acknowledged.
Next you have to decide, what next?
You might need to take a month off just to recover, sleep in, go on holiday, reacquaint yourself with yourself; or you might need to get right to it and begin the job hunt post-haste.
Looking for a new job can bring up all kinds of anxieties, especially if you've been out of the job market for a while.
Polishing your CV, brushing up your interview skills, dressing for success, unearthing your contacts book, making phone calls - all the stuff that can be unsettling if you're out of practise.
Key for many people is: don't do it alone! Get a friend, a partner, an empathetic family member to support you with words of encouragement, practical advice, a shoulder or two to cry on and a helping hand when and if you need to pick yourself up and dust yourself off.
Sometimes there can be a great deal of embarrassment about admitting you need help when you're looking for a new job, but we'll say it again: don't do it alone!
