When you get a pink slip (meaning "Your fired"), you can feel all different kinds of emotion. Such as:
*Lower self esteem
*Drains bank account looking for another job
*Shock, anger - Asking yourself ..... Why me?
*Sense of blame
*Isolation - disconnect from people
*No purpose to keep on track
*Depression / anxiety
* Not taking care of one self
You need to move through your feelings. Even negative ones. Lean on family members and friends for support. Everyone looses a job one time or another. It may not even be to no fault of your own.
Go to work shops to brush up on your skills, meet with other people to do a job search, or volunteer for an organization. Open yourself up to seek other opportunities.
Ask yourself :
* What type of job do I want?
*What skills do I have?
*What skills do I need to learn?
* What will it take to obtain my goal?
*Why would someone hire me?
*What are your three best working traits?
*Are those traits important to the employer?
