You’ve been working on a job you either love, hate, or feel indifferently about when you find out you’re being laid off. What happens then?
Jobseekers are unemployed for an average of nine months, according to the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis. Finding a job can be a long, difficult process, but there are few things you can do to make the transition as easy as possible.
Let it out
Go ahead, be angry, sad, shocked, happy, relieved, or all at once. It’s likely you’ll experience a range of emotions after a lay-off. Whether privy to a job loss or not, it’s still a loss. Don’t confuse this with a pity party, though. Wallowing in self-pity or harboring negative feelings for your former employer can be paralyzing, but taking stock in the range of emotions you might feel is healthy. Take some time to sort through your emotions, and then move on.
