Unexpected Job Loss. How to manage?

We can all agree on one thing: 2020 has been full of shocks. You may have been furloughed, laid off, or dismissed from your work as businesses changed and responded to the recent pandemic. Perhaps you thought of taking a break from work for personal reasons till your life returns to normal.
A sudden, unexpected job loss, on the other hand, may be a stressful, surprising, and unpleasant event that can happen to anybody. Not only do you lose a source of money, but you also lose a feeling of purpose, which may be devastating to your self-esteem. It is natural to be concerned, saddened by the loss, or perplexed about what to do next, but it’s important to have a plan in place in these most unpredictable of circumstances; it may make it easier for you to get back strong after the inevitable mess; what you do next will define your situation:
1. Allow yourself to grieve.

2. Spend time in nature & take time for yourself.

3. Write about your feelings & list your positives.

4. Turn to your loved ones for support.

5. Exercise & eat well to keep your focus.

6. Volunteer.

7. Create a portfolio & reach out to your network.

8. Decide which job you’d like next & start applying for new opportunities.
