  • Consider Your Options

    Start considering your “either/or” options as “both/and” possibilities, often called a “Portfolio Career.”

  • Grieve

    Know that it’s OK to grieve the loss of your last job. This is normal and the 1st stage of a job transition.


  • Go It Alone

    Don’t take on your job search all alone!

  • Ask "Why Me?"

    Stop trying to find an answer to “why me?” Unfortunately, most people don’t find that answer.

  • Rely Only On The Internet

    Stop thinking the internet is going to find you your next job. Less than half of all jobs are posted publicly.

  • Forget Self Promotion

    Stop thinking that your resume is a simple historical document. Make it a sales brochure with features and benefits.

  • Be Too Hasty

    Stop – don’t send your resume to your network until you know it meets today’s standards. You may only have one chance with some people, so put your best foot forward.

  • Rely On Past Perceptions

    Stop using your past perceptions and knowledge as the guide to what to do next - a career coach can help you think bigger.

  • Forget To Stay Positive

    Be careful with whom you share you feelings about your job separation. Many of your contacts may be key connections to your next employer and they want to know that you’ve moved on with a positive attitude.
