REDUNDANCY A FRESH START TO YOUR WORKING LIFE!

The traditional concept of a job for life is fast becoming a thing of the past. It is a harsh economic reality that every person will lose a job to redundancy at least once due to their employer restructuring, outsourcing functions, requiring fewer staff or being placed in receivership. Redundancy challenges everyone differently, however it can be viewed as the opportunity for a fresh start in your working life.

It is a window of opportunity to reassess your career. You have the chance to look at other industries, to look at where and when you want to work. Whether you have been made redundant or simply looking for a new role, it is important to identify the experience and skills you have developed and which ones could be transferable and marketable to another employer.

Some important things to consider:

  • Update your resume
  • Refine your interviewing technique
  • Refresh and update your skills and knowledge by attending courses
  • Think laterally and be flexible most people look for exactly the same job as the one they have just left. Your skills and experience may be attractive to a range of positions across a range of industries
  • Remember to remain positive
