Dismissal is one of the most unpleasant situations we can be imprisoned in. Whether the dismissals happened as a result of an organizational change or the closure of the company, or whether the dismissals only affected us, they are always accompanied by a variety of difficult and burdensome feelings. Inevitably we begin to ask ourselves whether our professional level meets market requirements? Were we good enough? Do we have another chance to succeed? All the inevitable questions and reflections that accompany the dismissal process do not benefit either with self-confidence, not with mental state and certainly not with the chances of quickly embarking on a new path in a new workplace. This is exactly where the solution to the problem lies. Once dismissals become a place of opportunity, an internal point of view and a reassessment of abilities and expectations, they also become a starting point. However, some are unfair dismissals, and in this case you should look at a worker’s compensation lawyer.
Indeed, dismissals are always the end of some state, but they are also the beginning of a new state, which we can do much better than the previous state, and certainly of the present state. If we know how to work together effectively, analyze the opportunities, thoroughly evaluate the capabilities and resources, we will be able to draw the new map of your life.
I can’t move on, I’m at the wrong age.
Anyone can be dismissed at any age and the older you are, the less you may feel you can easily slip back into the workplace and secure a new job. However, sometimes you have to look at the silver linings. Sometimes the professional change we choose for ourselves or that is forced on us is accompanied by “aggravating circumstances”. In the professional field the aggravating circumstances are age. It is no secret that after the age of 50 the situation in the labor market becomes much more complex. Although the person is still full of strength and energy, and has many more years until retirement, the attractiveness in the eyes of employers diminishes. The lack of self-confidence that accompanies entering the labor market after the age of 50 often makes the situation difficult even before the search begins, and causes the candidate to lower expectations and not be at their best in job interviews.
On the other hand, a more calculated and rational approach to your career, change at age 50 can completely change things. After all, a person who enters the labor market at this age brings with it many advantages that young candidates do not have, including professional and personal experience, assertiveness and judgment, a desire for stability and loyalty to the employer. When you know how to map things out, highlight the benefits, add each person’s personal resources, accurately match expectations to the situation in the job market, job searches even after age 50 look different.
Take a new turn
There is a very wide range of factors that make a person decide to start their own business. Sometimes it’s internal changes, sometimes it’s external changes and labor market constraints, and in many cases it’s a combination of both. No matter what led the person to the decision to start an independent business, the most important thing is to implement that decision in the most sensible way. Time to make change!
