Step 4: Find the Professional You n5.jpg

It's easy to lose your confidence, and your perspective, when you've recently been terminated. But losing a job doesn't make you any less of a professional. It simply presents a challenge to be overcome. Take the opportunity now to assess yourself as a person and as an employee. The following questions provide a starting point:

  • How would you describe yourself as a professional?
  • How have you typically reacted to extreme stress and pressure?
  • What have been the most difficult kinds of work problems you've had to handle?
  • Who do you typically react: when you are criticized? When you get angry?
  • How would you define "success?"
  • What do you like and dislike about work in general?
  • What are some of the rewards you expect from work?
  • What are your short range and long-term career objectives?
  • Have you in the past ruled out any career alternatives that you would now like to reconsider?
