The most stressful time of one’s career is when he gets fired from a company; people often go in deep depression or cause a bigger mess when they are leaving. To prevent such a scenario or worse, we have a few tips regarding the things you should do when you get fired from your job; we hope that this will guide you on how to professionally handle this set back of your career.
Swallow your pride
When you get fired or hear the news, your first instinct is to respond back and clear to everyone who would listen that you were fair and it is not your fault. But you must not do that because once the administration has taken a decision, you can’t alter it, anyway.
So the best way to leave is to swallow your pride and go silently. In fact, the more silent you are the more positivism you will exhibit. You need to let them think they are on top and should fight the urge to be bitter to everyone. The more retaliation you will show, the more worse your situation will get.
If you are fired from your well served position where you invested good time and effort, then instead of bitching about the company or the administration, you should stay humble because humility is a virtue of righteous people. When you will follow this tip, you will easily win the hearts of many of your colleagues and they would know by themselves that you are a victim. Not only that but you will also earn the respect in their eyes and they will be forced to acknowledge all the things that you have done, shared and invested in the best interest of the company.
To give a last blow, you should leave with the display of gratitude for all the chances you got, to learn from your seniors or the company at whole.
Take time for closure
When your company administration or senior executive fires you, yes, you should eat your pride and stay humble but don’t let them shove you further down by taking away your right to your monetary advantages of unemployment or by not letting you seal off all your cases, deals and clients properly. It is your right to completely finish and hand over your deals and clients to your successor.
