Coping with redundancy
The Career Guru – Monster UK
The days when you could land a job after leaving school or university and keep it until you chose to move on are long gone. Even in traditionally ‘safe’ industries like banking or the Civil Service, redundancy has become a fact of life as organisations are forced to change to keep pace with market pressures.
But why me?
Don’t take it personally. Redundancy is a numbers game – reducing overheads and cutting positions which have been judged expendable for a variety of reasons.
You may have seen it coming and take the final redundancy notice as a kind of relief from the uncertainty. However it happens, it’s likely that you will feel angry, betrayed and possibly a bit desperate. These are all perfectly natural emotions but, as ever, it’s how you respond that matters.
