Help! I’ve Lost My Job by Richard G Lowe Jr

How to handle those hard times when you've lots your job.

Help! i’ve lost my job

Most of us are proud of our work and job. We need to have a job to feed our families, pay the rent, keep the car repaired, and buy a few luxuries now and then. We become connected to people at work and often feel like the place is our second home. This shouldn’t be surprising, as many of us spend a third or more of our lives in the office. 

Thus, the sudden loss of employment can be gut wrenching, depressing, and, depending on an individual’s financial situation, a dire emergency situation. For those who live from paycheck to paycheck, the sudden loss of employment might mean losing their home or not eating. 

The purpose of this book is to help you, an employee who has recently been terminated or feels it is coming, get the answers that you need to make your transition from one job to another as smooth as possible.

Most of us are proud of our work and job. We need to have a job to feed our families, pay the rent, keep the car repaired, and buy a few luxuries now and then. We become connected to people at work and often feel like the place is our second home. This shouldn’t be surprising, as many of us spend a third or more of our lives in the office.

Thus, the sudden loss of employment can be gut wrenching, depressing, and, depending on an individual’s financial situation, a dire emergency situation. For those who live from paycheck to paycheck, the sudden loss of employment might mean losing their home or not eating.

The process of terminating an employee is often not handled very well by managers. Frequently, there is little to no training in the process; human resources departments tend to have the mindset of “covering the company’s butt” and focus on documentation and procedure rather than human beings.

Some companies are so unforgivably unprofessional that they send emails to employees for mass firings. They do this because it’s simple, it’s documented, and it avoids the unpleasant face-to-face conversation with the employee. It also removes the effect of people from the equation; firing should never be simple, quick and painless. There is a person involved, the one being terminated, and managers must understand that what they do affects the life, future, and family of that person.
