Job loss is a traumatic experience that can tear you apart. It is an emotional and traumatic experience that impacts your social, economic and psychological status quo. The work place is not designed to help you recover from being UnChosen. Managers, recruiters, and friends don't understand it, and are unable to help you unless they have also been through the experience. This book is a guide through this journey from two authors who have experienced it several times and moved on to recovery. UnChosen discusses the impact through personal experience, chronicles the journey, and offers a path to recovery. It is a guide to surviving the new workplace where company loyalty is disappearing and career minded workers need to become more self-reliant to survive. Our book will help you understand what you are experiencing and how to emotionally prepare in moving your life forward from job loss. We have written our experiences to help you conquer those obstacles and become free again.
