What’s the best advice you received on job loss or job hunting?
I’m compiling a top 10 list and so I’m asking for input. Entries selected will be paid $25 to be included in Escape from Unemploymentville book.
But first let me answer the question myself.
The best job loss/job hunting advice I received was…
“Take a break. Don’t even think about a job or looking for one for at least 3 or 4 days.”
These words of wisdom came from my husband who saw the basketcase I had become when I was notified that my formal job offer had been rescinded (the project I was being hired to work on was cancelled). My first thought had been to… get right back on that horse! And had it been a horse I’d fallen off of, that might have made sense, but it wasn’t and I needed a change of scenery and activity.
