Most of us are proud of our work and job. We need to have a job to feed our families, pay the rent, keep the car repaired, and buy a few luxuries now and then. We become connected to people at work and often feel like the place is our second home. This shouldn't be surprising, as many of us spend a third or more of our lives in the office.
Thus, the sudden loss of employment can be gut wrenching, depressing, and, depending on an individual's financial situation, a dire emergency situation. For those who live from paycheck to paycheck, the sudden loss of employment might mean losing their home or not eating.
The purpose of this book is to help you, an employee who has recently been terminated or feels it is coming, get the answers that you need to make your transition from one job to another as smooth as possible.
