Job loss and unemployment involves a lot of change all at once, it may cause financial difficult and psychological repercussions not only for you but for your family. however, surviving your job loss and thriving from it are possible.
Our jobs are much more than just the way we make a living. They influence how we see ourselves, as well as the way others see us. They give us structure, purpose, and meaning.
Beyond the loss of income, losing a job also comes with other major losses, some of which may be even more difficult to face:
Here are some things you could do after losing your job,
PROCESS YOUR EMOTIONS: Losing your job can trigger a range of emotions; some of which may be uncomfortable. Sometimes people ignore these feelings or try to hold them inside. Many at times people don't realize that anger, frustration, disappointment, fear and frustration are the common response to being laid off or terminated. So its very important to process your emotions you're feeling once you're calm and figure out what you're going to do it with those emotions. Emotions left unchecked will build up and eventually, you will build up and will start acting them out in ways that don't serve you.
NETWORK: The vast majority of job openings are never advertised; they’re filled by networking. Networking may sound intimidating or difficult—especially when it comes to finding a job—but it doesn’t have to be, even if you’re an introvert or you feel like you don’t know many people.
VOLUNTEER: While unemployment can wear on your self-esteem, volunteering helps you maintain a sense of value and purpose. And helping others is an instantaneous mood booster. Volunteering can also provide career experience, social support, and networking opportunities.
MAKE A LIST OF ALL EXPENSES YOU CAN SLASH: spend one day figuring out your new budget. you don't know how long it will be until you have a steady income again. so you need to be cautious with the spending.
KEEP A REGULAR DAILY ROUTINE: When you no longer have a job to report to every day, you can easily lose motivation. Treat your job search like a job, with a daily “start” and “end” time, with regular times for exercise and networking. Following a set schedule will help you be more efficient and productive.
CREATE A JOB SEARCH PLAN: Avoid getting overwhelmed by breaking big goals into small, manageable steps. Instead of trying to do everything at once, set priorities. If you’re not having luck in your job search, take some time to rethink your goals.
LIST YOUR POSITIVES: Make a list of all the things you like about yourself, including skills, personality traits, accomplishments, and successes. Write down projects you’re proud of, situations where you excelled, and things you’re good at. Revisit this list often to remind yourself of your strengths.
MAINTAIN BALANCE: Don’t let your job search consume you. Make time for fun, rest, and relaxation—whatever revitalizes you. Your job search will be more effective if you are mentally, emotionally, and physically at your best.
GET PLENTY OF SLEEP: Sleep has a huge influence on your mood and productivity. Make sure you’re getting between 7 to 8 hours of sleep every night. It will help you keep your stress levels under control and maintain your focus throughout your job search
