How should I approach my job search after being laid off?


Answered by: ByVirtualist career experts

ByVirtualist understands that being laid off from your job can be a challenging experience, and the urge to immediately start a job search is natural. However, it’s important to approach the situation strategically and develop a plan to navigate this transition effectively.

While a layoff is not your fault, finding a new job takes time and requires careful consideration. Before diving into a job search frenzy, take a step back and create a clear plan. Having a well-defined strategy for surviving a layoff will help you weather the temporary setback and increase your chances of bouncing back successfully.

To support you during this period, ByVirtualist has collaborated with LinkedIn Learning to offer a comprehensive course on Recovering from a Layoff and securing a new job. This course provides step-by-step advice and valuable insights to help you navigate the process.

As a member of ByVirtualist, you have free access to this course through the ByVirtualist Learning Center. Additionally, our dedicated Career Coaching team is available to assist you in your career change. We encourage you to schedule a session with one of our professional Career Coaches who can provide personalized guidance and support during this transition.
