Purge Your Anger Before Interviewing

Many times when someone leaves a job, it is not under the best of circumstances, and the employee has hurt feelings and even anger toward their former employer. Many employers are considerably insensitive toward the toll parting ways can have on the employee, which is a shame, as it hurts the employee and the company’s reputation as an employer. This insensitivity causes feelings the employee must process before they can effectively move on.

More often than not, the anger will leak out during interviews. Processing one’s feeling about a parting of ways in necessary before engaging in interviews for what’s next.

The people who have taken an “always be ready” mindset, regularly networking and keeping their personal marketing materials (more than a resume for executives) have a much easier time of it because they don’t feel the crushing sense of what now and fear because they have a good level of preparation already accomplished. Listen to ExecuNet Career Strategist Harriette Lowenthal talk about this situation in this excerpt from a panel discussion.
