Do these things to minimize the fallout…
Once your supervisor has handed out the pink slip, don’t waste time, take action immediately:
- Email coworkers, let them know where they can reach you after leaving. No need to go into detail regarding what happened. Above all, don’t trash your boss.
- Transfer all important contacts and documents to your personal email–make hard copies too.
- Move your personal information into the trash, then empty it.
- Once home, contact supportive friends and family. Tell them you want to talk, go out for dinner, or coffee.
