In all probability you are about to lose your job in the result of some restructuring of the business company or anything that might be currently underway where you could be on the losing end anyway. Then perhaps, considering how the market for your services has shrunk, and given the debts you may be carrying on your shoulders, why not call it quits and move towards the direction you never thought that would appeal to you as a job?
Some Tips Before You Set Sail into the Unknown
Assess and Reassess Your Skills
If the job is doomed, then you have no chance but to simply let it go with masterly plan before your contract expires. Spreading the word that you would be soon available could be a double sword, therefore you would need your employer to provide stellar credentials that epitomize the work you have delivered. Gather up everything you have managed to gather so far in your career to make the most of it when the time comes to deliver the goodbye speech and then to endorse yourself on the market. Do not sell yourself short by any chance, though cut down on any superficious claims and stay away from putting on airs and graces of any sort.
Think hard what you are best represented by and what new skills you managed to develop whilst being employed in the current position. What are your prospects and where could you turn to to make a living out of it? If you gained no new experience you might find it hard to change trade so you will need plenty of time before you learn anything new that would bring you more than pittance for your efforts. Analyzing your strengths is a good start but with little experience in that field it might take too long before you land a normal paying job. Grab a chance to develop your skills when there is still time, as the changing market will require the ability to adapt to the reality, but mind you, as you learn, there are thousands others that do too. In the end, the winner and the breadwinner is the person who sees afar when it comes to the edge cutting technology and trends. Other than that it may be a real slog for years unless you stand firmly on your feet.
Seek Instant Help
Find any support that you can while seeking a job that you could do for some time and do not restrict your interests by any chance. Set up accounts on popular websites and create as many links as possible, also digging out old contacts that perhaps you forged before. Get ready to prepare a profile that would fit another company’s preferences and expect rejection in most cases. It is going to be a time consuming process because most people are now in the same boat as you now.
