How can I deal with being fired?

Make Peace with Your Job Loss

Terminated workers must come to grips with the loss of their job or risk difficulties in finding future employment (who wants to hire a potential problem?)

In her book "In Search of a Job," Karyn Innis recommends starting with some introspection. Ask yourself:

  • What really happened?
  • What problems face me in my job search?
  • What do I want to do next?
  • What is important to me?
  • What do I have to offer?
  • What have I accomplished in my working life?

    The answers to these questions are the foundation to all future job search activities.
