Top 7 Keys to Avoid Inaction After Losing Your Job
By Dr. Sander Marcus

Article Summary:

Losing one's job is often one of the most traumatic events in any person's life, and can have an immediate and devastating impact on one's social, emotional, financial, and family life. Worst of all, it can make a person feel incompetent, angry, confused, and discouraged. These feelings usually lead to inaction - the failure to do anything but mope and feel sorry for one’s self. This is understandable, especially when you consider how many aspects of our lives are tied up with our working life, even our own sense of personal identity and self esteem. To lose a job is equivalent, psychologically, to experiencing failure and abuse. The result is truly shock. Many of these feelings linger even after a person gets a new job. While there are no magical cures, there are some things you can do if you find yourself in this situation. Having a combined experience as a clinical psychologist and career counselor, I have worked with literally thousands of individuals in this difficult situation. Here are 7 keys I have found that help people to get through it so that they will have the energy and confidence to take the actions needed in pursuing the next job.
