Losing your job can be difficult and discouraging. But the important thing is to stay positive and be confident when you apply for new jobs.

Take action:
Conduct a self-evaluation – consider taking a night course to improve your skills for today's market; boost your self-esteem by getting letters of appreciation and recommendation from recent co-workers and supervisors; make finding a job a full-time job – get out of the house and talk with people; don't just send out your resume – follow up with each potential employer to see what more you can do to increase your chances of getting hired; when you find a position you would like, research the company and customise your application to fit it as closely as possible with what the employer needs; before your job interview, review your successes and skills.
