Do Over

5 things to do when you lose your job.

I’ve lost my job before a few times and it’s not a fun experience. (That might be the most obvious sentence ever written on the Internets.)

If you’re out of work right now, check out this quick video I made with the team over at Rare. (You can see more than a dozen other videos I made right here too!)

  1. Wise words. I experienced a job loss a couple of years ago. I needed to see this then.

  2. Thanks Jon! I lost my job 2 months ago, and your resources have been incredibly helpful. Do Over has been an amazing resource, and I will proclaim it from the rooftops.

    I have a new job starting next week, and I attribute it to a handful of factors – my wife, my faith, and DO OVER. Great work Jon and thank you for giving us hope and concrete steps to take!

    Good video. I now have “next” and have become stuck. I submit resumes and get an occasional interview just to be told the company decided to promote from within. Any suggestions?

  5. Wonderful tips Jon! I’m sharing!
