Q1: How should I tender resignation? 


When you resign from your job, it's important to do so as gracefully and professionally as possible. If you can, give adequate notice to your employer, write a formal resignation letter, and be prepared to move on prior to submitting your resignation. 


Write a resignation letter the right way, and you can quit your job and stay on good terms with the company you are leaving. It’s possible to leave without burning your bridges, even if you hate your job and can’t wait to leave for something better.


There are many resignation letter samples online, including examples with many different explanations, do check out those samples to help yourself to write a good resignation letter. 


Q2: I lost my job recently due to retrenchment. What should I do?


First of all, acknowledge your emotions. It is not uncommon to be upset or angry. While it's okay to vent at your friends and family, do not act out toward your boss or coworkers. 


Let’s take a short break and try to figure out what happened so you can learn from this experience. It's easy to blame others, but it is essential to own your own weaknesses or mistakes. If you don't, it won't be possible to make the necessary changes to keep it from happening again. 


During your employment gap, take the time to spruce up your skills. Find out which ones are most valuable to employers in your field and sign up for classes or find free online tutorials. If you have been making EIS contributions monthly, you can also claim monetary aid for your training. 


Unless you've decided to take time off from work to retrain for a new career, your primary objective is to find a new job as soon as possible. Create a competitive resume that highlights the skills that are most in-demand in your field and is free of even minor errors. 


Do let people in your professional network know what has happened and don't be ashamed to ask for job leads. Review your job interviewing skills and make sure you have appropriate attire available. Good luck! 


Q3: Recently my company had undergone a downsizing. Many of my colleagues were retrenched. A part of me is relieved and thankful because I still got the job but at the same time, I felt guilty for the colleagues that lost the job. How should I overcome this stress? 


It is normal for a layoff survivor to experience layoff survivor syndrome. No matter your relationship with your laid-off coworkers, you may feel a sense of sadness, or feel guilty that you survived the layoff. 


You may also experience an increased level of stress relating to both the increased workload and your distrust of management. 


To cope with the layoff survivor syndrome, you can talk out your feelings with coworkers that are likely experiencing loss just as you are. You can comfort one another. Your significant others outside of your workplace make good sounding boards, too. 


You can also connect your laid-off coworkers to your connections on Facebook, LinkedIn, and other online social networks. Anything you can do to help them expand their networks and effectively perform a job search will be valued by your friends.
