Jobseeking after Redundancy
Redundancy, whether an unexpected shock, or a long-awaited development can be difficult to deal with.
However, it gives people an opportunity to take stock and examine their career and life ambitions. A good tactic to avoid losing confidence in finding another job is to start the search for a new job as soon as you hear of your redundancy. One of the advantages of job seeking following a redundancy is that you’re available immediately to start a job.
However, those thinking of applying for voluntary redundancy should take heed, all applications for voluntary redundancy may not be considered by your employer. Your interest in leaving the company voluntarily may be a black mark against you in your employer’s eyes, impacting your future career in the company.
