    Default Lost my Job!! :-( Any career advisor here?

    Well its a 5h1t place that im in now.

    Been in this job just over 6 months having been made redundant from the previous one (again was only there 5 months)!

    Got called into the office on Wednesday and contract terminated ON THE SPOT!! I was given just enough time to clear my desk and wipe my PC. They said to me that my numbers have been great and that the company has been operating at a loss for 12 months (so why the 'effin hell did they take me on!)!!

    Merry blooming Christmas to me and my family hey.

    Anybody able to offer a bit of career advice as im not going back into the same area of work - sales! Had enough. I really need a different direction and focus. Doubt I will find anything this side of xmas.

    Now my family have to suffer with my tantrums and upset!!

    Not a happy bunny here.

    Chin up fella... Not a nice position to be in anytime, let alone now. Something will come along and get you back to work. You've got your family and health in the meantime.

    , Try not to feel like "what did I do ?" m8, sales is a great line to be in when the economy is good, but otherwise it's JITTERY. A proper trade will not let you down in the longer term.... anything from plumbing to electrics and even motor trade, but even then it's very competitive but they are always places that the public look to for help constantly, so if there is any chance of a new direction, grab it now.
    Anyway, try not to feel like it's something or anything that you did, I'm sure that isn't the case. Just time maybe for a rethink on the direction from here on in ?
    Good luck m8, been there and got a dozen tee shirts to show for it too.

    Sorry to hear your predicament mate. If you want anyone to give your CV the once over feel free to give me a shout. I can't tell you what direction to look in for work but I can probably get your cv in good shape and give you a few interview tips?

    Hi G, I'm in the same position mate, lost mine August because I told my company I was relocating and it would take approx 6 months - therefore 6 months notice and time to find someone who I could train to do my job. A week later they handed me my P45!! Have a possible job waiting in new location but have to sell house first so no money coming in - have had a baby so the missus aint working either.
    Def know where you are coming from and really hope you find something soon.

    How long you been in sales. Do you have a qualification may be nvq level 3. If so why dont you think about delivering the nvq yourself as an nvq assessor. Some companies will take you on and take you through your A1 awards as you are working. If you enjoy helping people then its a job you could enjoy
