There is a natural progression to a job search and how you feel when you have been fired. Let me give you the key line that would be in the 8 episodes of the reality show, “I Was Fired.”
Episode 1: Fired? I’ll have another job before I’m out the door, you slug.
Episode 2: If I call 3 of my friends, I’ll have two job offers by the end of today.
Episode 3: I better file for unemployment checks. This may take a week or two.
Episode 4: After “Survivor” I’ll try to send out a resume on “CareerBuilder”.
Episode 5: Will the sun ever shine again? Why don’t the stars twinkle anymore?
Episode 6: The capitalist military industrial complex corrupts and destroys all the slaves forced to toil therein.
Episode 7: My dog still loves me. That’s a start.
Episode 8: I can have the job? Really?? The pay is low…but I’ll prove you made a great decision!
The real job search emotional progression includes:
reconciling with reality,
not knowing what to do next,
realizing your self worth,
and finding a job.
It’s natural. Where are you at?
