Getting fired is one of the most stressful experiences a professional can go through. I am truly sorry that this has happened to you. Since this still is very fresh, there will be little I can say to take the sting or shock away. Those feelings will go away with time. But discussing the ramifications and strategies to move forward may help put things in perspective and get you geared up and ready for the next chapter in your career.

Getting fired is not the end of the world … or your career. Far from it. Professionals are fired every day, in every way, at every level. And for various reasons too—from illegal behavior to politics to just a plain ol’ bad fit. So it’s a common occurrence in the business world that employers and employees deal with daily. With this said, getting fired is not something to take lightly. It’s a serious event that deserves serious consideration and self-reflection if you want to learn from this situation and evolve.
