Job security has become an elusive concept today. You could be thrown off your job all of a sudden in these difficult times. Not many people think about quitting a job today unless they have already got another. But there are many cases when leaving a job can be involuntary and can come all of a sudden when you are least prepared mentally and professionally for being on the job search. You can be laid off for a simple reason that your employer suddenly decided to cut costs.
No company is in the best of shapes today. It is not easy to guess as to who will get the axe next at your job place. There are ways to go about assessing such a situation. It is important for you to know that you are not alone in this insecurity syndrome. Even if you are sacked, it does not mean for your next employer that it is because of your inability or performance at work. In the past few years, many top performers have been sacked for no reason. The only logic is that they were too expensive to keep for a company or that they had become redundant for their employer with business not getting the expected profits.
You have to learn to move on without being flustered or angered by this situation. If you are laid off from work, do not prolong that break period if possible. The longer you are jobless, the more difficult it becomes to get a job again. If you are unable to explain a particular situation, leave it out of your resume. If you are equipped with a letter documenting the reason of your termination from the previous company, it will work well for you.
