3. Don't burn bridges.

If we feel that we have been wronged, we may lash out at those around us. The anger we express may make us feel better at that moment, but it could affect us later on. It is important to resolve pent-up anger, but it is better to wait until one has a chance to take stock and carefully think about what needs to be done. Stop and think before you speak negatively about the company or anyone who works at the company including your supervisor, co-workers, staff members, etc. Remember that these people are going to be looking for work also and may find something better at another company. Wouldn't it be great if they gave you a referral as a hard worker who would be an excellent candidate for another open position in that same company? You might get one if you can hold your tongue when you lose your job.
