“Getting laid off was one of the best things that ever happened to me.” A VP once said this to me as she handed me a pink slip.
Yeah, right. I’ve been laid off three times. No matter how prepared you are, it’s a lousy feeling.
Let’s face it, it’s hard to look for a job. All those judgments. All that disappointment. All the waiting. The strange thing is that – like so many things – I got better at being unemployed by changing both my attitude and my tactics.
