one girl’s guide to surviving unemployment

first things first

So, you got laid off.  Where do you even begin?

Cry, scream, get angry, get drunk, listen to loud music, eat a tray full of brownies, run until you physically collapse.  I’m completely serious – take a day to do whatever you need to do to shake the negativity.  You need to get this out of your system before you can begin to take action.

Yes, it sucks.  It’s unfair, uncalled for, and you can’t believe that the company for whom you worked would do that to you – especially after you were loyal to them — and in today’s economic downturn. 

Well, it happened, and there is nothing that you can do to change it. 

Spend a day or two – at most – to deal with the rollercoaster of emotions. You’re going to need energy to get (and keep) you motivated, and it’s best not to waste too much time on the negative stuff.
