First, to maintain a positive attitude.
This is not a negative attitude towards their own time. Maybe you will regret not early to start looking for work or save money, but indulge in "if the original" did not help you, will only increase your anxiety and frustration. On the contrary, you should think about the obstacles that have been overcome in the past and focus on things that can bring you confidence.
Second, give your manager, colleagues and personnel to leave a positive impression.
Do not forget to thank all of you on the day you really leave. Even for those who do not lose their jobs, they may feel guilty because they are in trouble and feel anxious about what they may be treated like. The decent performance of your resignation will show you confidence in your struggle, and you may be able to draw a general relationship with your peers.
Third, advance into the job status.
Do not blindly send your resume, frantically search, just to find something. Indeed, you are looking for a job, but you also want to find a suitable job. What kind of job is right now? It may be for temporary work accepted for cash. It may also be a horizontal move for learning new skills. It is also possible to switch to the different occupations you have been interested in. One of the benefits of layoffs is that you have the opportunity to find new jobs. Will you start your original job again? If you like, then you know the company looking for the same industry, functional area and type. But if you do not want to, then explore what kind of choice will be better, and then to find this better job.
Fourth, analyze your cash situation.
But even so, do not underestimate the time required for job search. You are with the other tens of thousands of job seekers to enter the job market. You may have been looking for a job for years. Now you know how much your severance pay is, and how much time you can find your job. You should be at least 3 months for your job search, so if you do not have cash so long, then focus on temporary or consulting class work to support their own cash reserves.
The same time as the above- 5, to collect contact information, to prepare for use after leaving.
Do not forget to get people's permanent contact information. After you leave, they are also likely to leave the company, so do not assume that their current company information will remain valid. You will no longer be able to access your office equipment, including the phone provided by the employer, so please make sure to link the contact information to your personal document.
The same time as the above- Sixth, consider the company's internal turnover.
Your department may be laying off, but other departments may be recruiting employees. Do not forget to consider the current employer's affiliate or joint venture. Ask about whether there is a consultation job, sometimes a department does not have full-time jobs, but there is a certain consultation budget, if you are already familiar with the internal business processes to do consultants, they will benefit.
7. Consult your severance payment and the date of separation.
Severance pay is often a bargain. Pay attention to your date of departure, see how long your insurance period, retirement account can give you how much to return, or you spent a few days with a vacation leave. Do not think you have to sign any agreement immediately. Make sure you are aware of your severance payment arrangements and do not be afraid to ask questions.
Do more than a few things later, you can pay resignation book, should not blindly action.
