What to do now dating
It was everything the job I lost wasn’t, and even though I eventually left it to follow a bigger dream, it was an important step in who and where I am today. I saw this same trajectory reflected in almost everyone I fired, too.
What was initially perceived as the worst thing usually led the person to a much better and befitting situation.
The most common question I got when I worked in HR was the same one I had when got fired: Who is going to find out? If you think of the aftermath on a spectrum, the worst case being everyone knows and the best case being no one does, most cases fall somewhere in the middle.
If the separation is truly amicable — you might even call it mutual — it’s worth asking if your employer will let you position the exit internally as share that sort of thing anyway, for legal reasons, and typically the most they’ll say, if called, is whether or not you’re “eligible for rehire,” which is both an official designation and unspoken code for how it went down.
It helped me see my situation less as a mark of failure and more as another mark on my path.
If it doesn’t sound legitimate, wait and decide if you want to push back (and how) with outside legal help.Also, be careful of accepting severance right away, as it usually comes along with a release document wherein you “release” your right to sue in exchange for the money.Even though he or she is representing a company, whoever is letting you go is just a human person doing a job, and they’re probably dreading the conversation as much as you.It happens more often than many suspect, even to people who are capable and “together.”Getting fired has a horrible connotation in our culture, but on the face of it, ending an employment contract is a reasonable outcome to something that happens all the time: a well-intended, unforeseeable mismatch.Just as a breakup between two people doesn’t necessarily indicate wrongdoing, the same can be said of a separation between employer and employee.
