Two words that no employee ever wants to hear… You’re FIRED!!  Suddenly that stable job that you have depended on for years to pay off your debts and put food on the table is no longer an option.  What do you do and where do you turn?  Odds are if you are on you are looking for employment in Saskatoon and you may be in this very situation.

The following tips can help you get up, dust yourself off, and get back out into the workforce.

1) Everyone gets fired for a reason.  Maybe it wasn’t your fault, but if it was, this is your chance to learn and make yourself a stronger person and a more talented employee! Whatever the reason, make sure that you know exactly why you were fired. Once you know why you were fired, find a why to fix your weaknesses so that you will not be fired for the same reason in the future!

2) You finally have an interview for a new job and I guarantee you will be asked, “Have you ever been fired from a job?” or “Why did you leave your previous job?”.  Gulp – did it just get hot in here!  Relax.  Know that this question will be asked and have your answer prepared ahead of time.  Keep your answer brief, keep it positive, and explain what you learned and how you have improved yourself since you were let go from your previous place of employment.  Be honest and do not blame your employer!  Speaking negatively about your employer or other coworkers sends the wrong message to potential employers.

3) Keep your head up!  Being fired can crush your confidence in yourself and your abilities.  As frustrated as you may feel, there are always other jobs and there will always be a positive outcome if you truly believe there will be!

We wish you the best of luck on the search for your new job.  Hopefully you can find a job in Saskatoon on!
