Losing one’s job can pose practical, logistical and financial problems. However, it’s the associated mental stresses that are the most difficult obstacles to overcome. Redundancy can damage your self-worth and affect your career confidence, but in order to get back in the workplace once more, it’s important to restore that confidence as soon as possible. Here are three quick tips to help you do so...
Talking to others can help to put your problems into perspective. Discussing your career with your friends and family can help you to rediscover your sense of value, while talking to those who have lost their jobs in the past will reassure you that redundancy isn’t anything to worry about. Pretty soon you’ll be raring to get back on the horse once more.
Some newly redundant workers will have been in the same career for years, and to them the very thought of applying for jobs and attending interviews can be extremely daunting. In order to build up your confidence ahead of an important interview, it helps to practice. Running through potential question-and-answer sessions will help you to quell the interview jitters and see you pass with flying colours.
Of course, there’s no reason why you should seek to cope with the emotional effects of redundancy on your own.
