Chapter 11. Pink Slip Blues > Your First Five Steps After Losing Your Job

Your First Five Steps After Losing Your Job

If you've never lost a job, the experience can be very unsettling, particularly in corporate America because their sendoffs can be quite chilly. For instance, it is not unusual to come to work one day and find that your keys no longer open your office. Maybe you arrive to find a rather menacing looking security guard standing in front of your office. He'll ask for your I.D. badge and keys and then tell you that you've got 15 minutes to pack up. To make matters more strange and embarrassing, the guard will walk you to your car. How's that for a kick in the teeth?

If you've got that pink slip in your hand, then it is time to get busy. Of course it smarts and you feel bad. Shake it off. You've got better things to do than feel sorry for yourself.
