Navigating a layoff?
Clair Mitchell wrote about what she learned in ArcVida's latest blog post.
"Until I was laid off from my job in 2016, I didn’t know what I didn’t know about job hunting. I’d never been through a layoff before, but I lived in a city with a robust job market. “I’ve got this,” I thought, as I envisioned a bright future for myself.
It didn’t take long to realize I didn’t know what I was doing. My job search quickly became a roller coaster ride through a maze of a process. But I pressed forward into the uncertainty and I began to learn.
The 2 most important things that I learned were:
1. Don’t go it alone.
2. There were excellent resources available that I was unaware of because I had not needed them before.
These days my heart goes out to those who have suddenly found themselves unemployed. My own period of unemployment showed me that job loss impacts so many areas of life. Job seekers in today's extenuating circumstances are facing more uncertainty.
Drawing from my own experience, with the hope of possibly making your job hunting path a bit easier, I offer these additional suggestions. "
