Redundancy is an opportunity not to be missed!

Hi Everyone

When you are made redundant, it hurts.  If you loved your job it hurts all the more.  You can feel confused, hurt, lost, vulnerable, insecure, upset and even betrayed.  For some people it can be a downward into depression and for some they feel their life isn’t worth living……..

Stop – Stop this right now.

These feelings are all natural given the circumstances which have been thrust upon you.  Believe me, I know what it is like, I have been there, twice.

You have to acknowledge these feelings and allow them to take their course, but not allow them to take over you.

Treat redundancy as an opportunity to:

Consider these options:
  • Turn your hobbies into a job by starting your own business, there are many free seminars you can attend and free information available on the internet
  • Take a course at college, university, or through distance learning for example with the Open University
  • Doing voluntary work or work experience gives you the perfect opportunity to explore different job roles before you make the leap
Whatever you decide to do, you must – stay positive.

    1. Hi Caroline

      Thank you for contacting me. It is always great to hear from a like minded individual.

      I have had a look at your site and I particularly like the section titled “after redundancy.”

      It is fantastic to hear how redundancy has changed the lives of so many people, for the better. Their stories are a true inspiration to all of us.

      Maybe we can work together in the future to build a better one?

      Stay positive.
