Suddenly you are being laid off, what should you do?

Nobody wants this to happen to oneself.
It is a very dreadful matter to hit a person.
Everything comes crushing down on the person.
The initial reaction is Shock, Stunt, Lost and dont know what to do.
Yes, many people will have to go through this stages of anxiety and scare.
What should you do if you are one of them?

Supposing if you are one of them that going to be retrenched, or as many jokingly put it : ORD date .
And what should you do if your ORD date is already set?

To be honest, what 5354 said is half correct.
That is Mai Kia. (Dont be afraid).
Yes, it is easy to say Mai kaii cos the person might not be in the shoe of the person who is having ORD date.

But is it very natural that one will be afraid, scare, lost, why like that? Mind blank, many thoughts in your head....what should one do...all the negative, feared, you name it, all come together and hit the person hard...

What should you do?

Dear Jac Lau

You helping PA P to lie every time. No wonder you are jobless since 2004.

My company closing down soon. I can bet $1, 000 with you that I will not get back the same job, in the same career and the same pay within 6 months.

Come on.
I demand Apology from Josephine Teo.

This is very true, I fully agreed!
When out of job, try to lower your expectation and lower your salary and lastly will not even get a same job anymore.
Company’s managers are very evil person, they hack you down for the sake of his survival and reemploy another cheap cheap staff. But that is not a issue anymore.

The real main issue is what should one do if ORD date is set...
Yes agreed with OLA, expectation and salary must adjust.
Expect to have a cut of 50% of your salary or more.
It is painful but at least one get a new job.
Yes, the most important thing is LOWER YOUR EXPECTATION.

When you know your ORD date, many things will be on your mind, your head swing, you lost, you smoke more...go on..it is okay...

And try to take 1 to 2 days to completely calm down yourself.
Yes it is difficult, but you must try.
You will experience sleepless night initially for maybe 1 to few days. It is natural. Not to worry.
You might even dream you got retrenched and things turn upside down. It is natural. Not to worry.
Once this dread path over, (calmness set in), go out jogging or exercise, sweat it out.
Jog and exercise and ponder what you should do next....stay calm...
You are alone with yourself with ORD date...

Go jogging and exercising as many times as possible, sweat it out and you will feel calm.

Talked to your loves one, talk to your parents, or your close friend or ex colleague, dont need to be shy, tell them you are ORDed.
Ask them to look around for you any jobs.
You must do this, networking is a must even if you have only 1 to 2 friends. It is alright. SMS or call them up.
Pour out your worry to your loves one or your parent.

Bro Tang, it might even worst and one might experience hang over after a drink?
And [email protected] and wine need to spend, so, maybe not advisable to spend now unnecessary.
Thanks bro for your advise...it might or might not work..

Well ... hang over so what ... no need to go office
Spend a bit because you deserve and it will give you better motivation to think on the next step instead of worrying
