Uh-oh, you just got canned. Yes, it’s totally crushing to your ego, your finances and probably just about every other part of your life. Once you pull yourself off the ground, wipe the tears from your eyes (this definitely calls for crying), and straighten your stance, it’s time to prepare yourself for getting back into the job search.
But if you’re fired, how are you going to make that look OK when you finally do land an interview? No worries. You may have lost your job because of something you did that didn’t win over management, but that doesn’t mean your career is over.
