😱 How to Recover From Job Loss | Job Recovery Tips After Being Fired


another video and today we’re going to
talk about how to recover after you’re fired
so first of all I want to say don’t worry about this too much it’s happened
to all of us we just don’t talk about it it’s happened to a lot of us it’s
happened to me in fact but most people don’t like to talk about it but you’re
not alone so let’s get started what you’re going to learn in this video so
the first thing you’re going to learn is the importance of the right fit and how
to spot it what’s staying in a bad job can do to
you emotionally and for the long term and why it doesn’t matter who broke up
with who essentially if you got fired or if you quit and how to address the
question why did you leave your last job so stay tuned you you you so what is the right fit what does the
right fit mean so I’ve come up with a few points that in my experience means
you’re in a good fit so you enjoy your tasks you enjoy the work that you’re
doing and by that I don’t mean every minute of every day you love it you
enjoy at least 80% and then there’s normally 20% of things that you don’t
love but you do because you know they’re necessary you have a good relationship
with your boss this for me has personally been the most important one
throughout the years if I have a good relationship with my boss it doesn’t
matter if sometimes I’m not always challenged or I don’t always love the
work but relationships to me are more important so some of these might be more
important to some people than other people but all all of them together
equal a good mix if you have a reasonably good relationship with your
coworkers so the vibe in there is good it’s not
toxic for you and you enjoy interacting with most people of course not everybody
because we can’t always get along with everybody but you know what I mean
and you have the skills and the knowledge to get this job done and if
you don’t you feel comfortable learning and sometimes you’re pushed out of your
zone but you’re not like completely off base like you know you know what you
need to do so what’s staying in a bad job for you is the why is the worst
thing that you could do anyways so staying in a bad job could lead to
health problems it caused by stress can lead to arguing with your spouse when
you get home yelling at your kids not having any time to be with friends it’s
very rare for someone to be let go who loved their job it happens in some cases
when layoffs happen and there’s usually some notice involved so if you were let
go chances are you weren’t happy chances
are you knew it was going to happen you had a warning and chances are you
weren’t the right fit sometimes when people are let go they actually feel
relieved in a way they feel relieved and they
might feel a bit of fear as well it’s like oh my god what am I going to do
next but in the grand scheme of things if you were not feeling happy then this
is probably one of the best things before you if you were let go it simply
means that you are now in a better position to find your dream job is the
first thing the place where you were wasn’t working and now you’re free to
find something better normally the act of getting fired itself
isn’t the biggest thing it’s what happens after that the good news is that
the world is changing very quickly and in the past most people have believed
that if you are fired good luck getting hired anywhere else
because that’s that’s it you know you’re damaged goods now but in fact that’s not
true anymore today it’s totally not the case getting
fired just means that you said that they said to you hey I don’t think it’s
working out before you had a chance to say it to them it’s nothing more most
employers won’t give you a bad reference because they would prefer not to be sued
and giving a bad reference is a risk for them it’s a risk to their HR department
and it’s not worth it so if anything they’re just going to confirm the dates
that you worked and verify any information that they need to that’s
factual and legal and move on so it doesn’t really matter who broke up with
whom the result is still the same agreed while it’s true that you never want to
say I was fired during a job interview or in your job search we still have the
updated idea that being fired puts a mark of shame on us so to speak as Liz
Ryan says but it’s not true most people who get fired from their jobs in my
experience are good people myself included it just means that some
something happened and it didn’t work out so you either had a personality
clash this happened to me you I might as my dad used to say he called it a
personality clash because he used to say not everybody can get along with
everybody it’s just not how the world works and it doesn’t make you a bad
person so that made me feel better because I really
is that no matter how hard I try to get along with everybody it’s just not a
realistic goal this doesn’t make you a bad person so the employer doesn’t tell
you their whole story either they have their own skeletons nothing goes
perfectly on their end either so if you were to ask why is this position open
they’re not going to tell you that they hired somebody and that that person ran
away screaming and quit because they had overwhelmed the person and not provided
enough training they’re not going to tell you that so when they ask you why
did you leave your last job you don’t have to tell them all the gory details
either here’s what you can say so when you’re asked the question there’s two
different ways you can ask for it so you want to listen carefully and neither of
these answers tell who broke up with who it’s just not relevant so if you’re
working somewhere for quite a long while this is your speech I had a great time
learning for the first four years and then it was time to go I needed a bigger
challenge if you were working somewhere for just a really short amount of time
you can say something like this I misjudged the situation and honestly I
thought it was going to be more of an executive assistant job but it turned
out to be more of an accounting book and clerk type of job and they needed
somebody who had a lot more numbers experience than I did and that’s not my
strong suit so if I were to do it over again I would definitely ask more
questions this is my exact scenario actually from a situation this is one
where I didn’t get fired I left on my own accord but see if you’ll notice in
the answer I never said any details you’d never know by this answer and it
doesn’t matter and those are the two those are the two main scenarios so I
want to leave you with a final thought before we wrap up and that is things
don’t have meaning we assign meaning to everything and that’s from my my
favorite 20 Robbins so assigning meaning to you getting
fired or let go is your choice you can make it mean whatever you want and there
you have it and we wrap up fit the importance of fit what it is and and why
you need to spot it wisely staying would suck the life out of you
anyway was probably the best thing that ever happened to you that you had to go
