7. Have an Ongoing Strategy.

Postpone your job search until you are ready to face the public. In a state of panic, some job searchers execute a false start. You may want to spend the first few days with family and close friends. If you have plans, keep them. A weekend trip, dinner with friends, or projects around the house are all ways to keep yourself busy while you adjust to the news you have received. By completing a project or two, you demonstrate to yourself that you can fulfill short term, self-directed goals, something you will need to do often during your job search.
