Losing a job or getting fired from your job is always the most dreaded situation, we always think of the bad times ahead and how to get out of the dreadful situation. It is always a very heartbreaking moment that can have a huge effect psychologically and can affect also our future work prospect.

Of course there are ways to remain positive throughout this hard times.

During this time you will need all the support from your closest friends and family, they will help you during this hard time and ensure that you remain focus on getting back on your feet. It will be important not isolate yourself.

2) Try to understand what went wrong, what exactly happened.

Understand what went wrong during the time on the job for you to be found in this situation. Was it due to the management, a colleague or the job? It is important to understand the problem so that you do not get into an identical situation when trying to find your next job. It is important not to over think about the situation one of my favorite quote actually emphasize the situation.

“You can spend minutes, hours, days, weeks, or even months over-analyzing a situation; trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could have, would’ve happened… or you can just leave the pieces on the floor and move on.” Tupac Shakur.

3) Things always get better

It is important not to become depressed when the situation arise and keep our head up and move forward. As soon as the news is given ensure that you request an evaluation of your work during the time you worked thee and also a recommendation letter if possible to be able not to waste time and start looking for your next employer. Remember to always leave in a friendly way n matter how awkward the situation was. In various industry word of mouth goes very fast and everyone knows each other.

Things always get better therefore it is important to move forward and leave the past to the past, you may have lost a job but we never know what better things might await for us in the future, remain positive and confident no matter hard it might be.
