“Getting fired is nature’s way of telling you that you had the wrong job in the first place” – Hal Lancaster
You’ve been fired and you are feeling disappointed or fearful of what the future might hold, right? It’s a normal feeling, you are not alone.
However, this is not as bad as it may seem. The best defense against this career setback is positivity.

2. Express Your Emotions
Once you have processed your emotions after being fired, you’re allowed to cry, shout, and talk about them with your family or even your close colleagues.
3. Learn From The Experience
Once you have recognized the feelings and expressed them, approach your company’s human resource department. Esquire about what you should do differently at your next job.
Insist that they highlight a few of your positive and negative qualities – knowing how you are perceived in a professional environment has positive long term effects.
4. Make The Change
You may have to deal with feelings of regret and it may lead to some unanswered questions. Do not allow this to hold you back for too long. Stay positive – we wish you the best of luck.
Rather see this as an opportunity to get out of your comfort zone. This really is your one chance to take control of your professional career.
• Start by preparing a winning CV and a good cover letter.
• Make sure that you have a list of people with good references. If you have no positive professional references, you can add the name and number of a trusted organizational leader, a business acquaintance or a religious leader.
