November is quickly becoming known as "No-Job-November" with many companies buckling up to tackle the upcoming 2023 recession.
Here's the top 4 things you must do right now to deal with layoffs;
And, do what you can do to secure your career:
#1: Remind yourself: Getting laid off is NOT your fault.
The reality is that business strategy decisions are often made at the top.
That means that it's never personal against you.
So, don't tie it to your self-worth.
You did nothing wrong.
#2: Re-write your career story.
I don't want your career story to be: "I was laid off".
Now is the best time to list down how you've contributed to your current role.
And, skills and value you can bring to the table of your next company.
Show these off in the "Career Summary" section of your resume.

#3: Revive your LinkedIn profile.
Many professionals treat LinkedIn as their social media platform.
This is a mistake. LinkedIn is your magic tool to attract new opportunities.
Make sure your LinkedIn profile reflects your professional value.
Not your random hobbies.

Don't give up too quickly.
