My Process of Finding a new Job
I was laid off and here’s how I got through it
I was laid off from my first corporate job in October 2017. I took it pretty hard, but now I have a new job and I want to share what I went through. I’d like to write a series of articles about the emotions, the processes and specifics, and the fun. I’ll post the links to each here as they get published.
Here are the articles I’ll be writing:
Being Laid Off and how I dealt with the emotions
Re-evaluating my life and my choices in a methodical way
How to Figure out Your Perfect Job
Six Online Career Evaluations that can Help you Know Yourself
Lessons I learned from being laid off
