Laid Off

Q. I've been laid off.  What do I do now?

A. Being laid-off unexpectedly can be a confusing experience and it is hard to focus on what to do next, or where to begin.

You should assess your financial situation to determine how long you can survive without a regular paycheck and make adjustments to your budget as necessary. Next, focus on your job search.

Here's a quick checklist to follow:

- Ask your employer about severance pay, accrued time, & sick pay, continuing health & life insurance coverage, etc.
- Ask about what outplacement resources they might have available for you.
- Request a reference letter for your files.
- Apply for unemployment benefits.
- Put your resume on all the top career sites.
