You are Fired - What's Next?
Another new direction of my company "Data Quality Services, LLC" business is providing Quality Information "Just-In-Time" for people whose employment was suddenly terminated for whatever reason. Such an unexpected situation is traumatic for both sides in Employment Termination "Transactions": Employer and Employee. My personal experience of being out of full-time employment since July 2014 provided me with understanding and knowledge of what should be said and done.
If we assume that most "fired" people were not in the job market after 2007, they would find a lot of structural changes in job ads: numerous and harsh work experience requirements, Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) with a new way of scanning, parsing and accepting/rejecting candidates' resumes based on keywords match resulting in the "silent treatment" and ignoring job applications of anybody who is unfit for jobs' requirements.
My company (actually, it's me for now) is ready to work with "let-go" employees, for those that were "re-engineered" out of the work force.
I have what to say, what to do or what not to do.
Each day of being out of job is harmful for fired people health (physical and mental) and significantly decreases their chances to get employed again.
