We are really disheartened to once again see lots of posts about the layoff, especially our fellow friends affected by Shopee’s layoff. Many people are facing uncertainty over again. We know that it’s not always easy to know how you should react when the company lays you off. The bright side is that it’s time for YOU talented people to take new risks and carve your own paths. BOSSHIRE is here to help you with some tips:
1. Know your value
First of all, you have to understand that you really have done well. Sometimes this is not something you can control. And it is important to understand that your value is not tied to one specific company. Understanding this will help you pass this process and rock your new career!
2. Be open-minded
Soon after you are finally ready to apply for more jobs, you should see things from a wider perspective. Try to see any job opportunities as your long-term plan. How can it help you build skills now, or will it allow you to do exactly what you want to do later?
3. Be honest
Keep in mind that being laid off is not a dishonor. In your next interview, tell them the real current state, including the economic reason. Tell them the job loss was not a result of your performance.
4. Tailor yourself
Develop new skills and strengthen your existing skill set. This will make you more attractive to future employers.
5. Have a connection with a professional recruitment company
Get out there confidently, meet people in your industry, and build on those relationships. The more people you know, the sooner and bigger job opportunities you find. Especially, the recruitment company, they have experts to help you match a suitable job asap!
