What Now?


The most common thought that runs across any recently laid-off campaign staff is “What do I do now that my job has ended?”

But before we dive in, first, inhale and slowly breath it out. The campaign has ended but your journey has not. Take a moment to acknowledge your accomplishments and hard work. You made it far. You did incredible work. You are probably exhausted so give yourself time to rest and heal. Once you’re ready (usually after some catch-up sleep), it’s time to continue your journey.

What to Know About Unemployment

Unemployment is tough but know that you are not in this alone. It’s not an indicator of your self-worth but rather that it takes time to find a new job. This section provides tidbits on what to expect when you’re unemployed and what to know about unemployment.

Revisiting Your Resume

After you leave a job, one of the first things that you want to do is rewrite your resume. Throughout the campaign, you gained new, invaluable skills. This section includes resume tips and sample resumes to help you showcase your amazing skills, wisdom, and accomplishments! Have questions about your resume?
