On today’s Career Corner Russ discusses steps you can take to overcome a downsizing or firing. 

Many of us have struggled due to a bump in our career, whether it be down-sizing or getting fired.

But just because you lost your job doesn’t mean you should lose hope.

On Friday morning, author and career expert Russ Hovendick, stopped to provide advice and insight to help you bounce back.

Russ says the biggest hindrance for someone experiencing a recent job loss is lack of confidence. He says without confidence in yourself, it’s extremely difficult for employers to put their confidence in you.

For someone recently downsized, Russ says the emotions can be overwhelming, but they can be overcome. He has a great exercise on his website that can help you get back on track.
