I received another question, this time from a past client of mine. We optimized his profile a few months ago and as he had expected might happen, he was let go just yesterday. Here is his email and my response…
I unfortunately have been given notice by my company, and I am negotiating severance. Can you do me a favor and give me a couple tips and ideas on how and when to update my profile. Obviously, there are a lot of contacts I have in the industry and personal.
Take a couple days to breath and then when you are back and balanced, roll up your sleeves and get started. Here is a list of things you can do.
Remember, when one door closes, another opens! I have been laid off numerous times and each time something better was waiting for me. You will be fine!
