Over a million Americans are laid off each year. That’s a tiny percentage of the total full-time workers in the U.S. (around 130 million). Yet, it’s still important to know how to react to a layoff in the event it happens to you. Even if saw it coming, you can’t control any aspect of a layoff except for how you handle it.
The first thing you should do is take a few days to deal with the loss of your job on an emotional level. Once you’ve accepted the reality of the situation, it’s time to start thinking about next steps. Reach out to your network. Updating your resume. And work with a recruiter. These are excellent ways to climb on the job hunt horse.
