Unexpected events like downsizing and being restructured happen to the best of people, and this type of shock can temporarily affect your career progress.
The setback and challenges involved can seem daunting. Don’t be discouraged. No one can take away from you your genuine achievements.
These situations often serve as a catalyst for change that might otherwise not have happened, and in the end, they often serve to increase your strength and purpose.
As recruiters, we see countless scenarios where one door closes and one door opens for people who keep their cool and decide to see the opportunity represented by being forced by circumstance to choose a new direction.
Those who choose not to allow a feeling of victimization to color their interactions with others, and who decide instead to spur themselves forward with positive determination invariably end up finding the opportunity that is right for them.
If you remain calm and persevering, you will find the right doors opening for you.
