||Getting Fired Is A State of Mind
By Nick Corcodilos
You've heard the conventional wisdom: it's easier to win a new job if you already have a job. In other words, a person who is
employed is viewed as more desirable than someone who is unemployed. And the terrifying corollary: If you've been fired, forget
it. You're mud.
My advice: don't sweat it. As long as you know you're a good worker, that your skills are solid, that you work with
intelligence and enthusiasm, and that you're pursuing the right new job for the right reasons, you can get over the "I was

"This is like reading a high-priced consultant's report to discover the "BFO" (blinding flash of the obvious). A lot of what you write makes absolute sense. It's intuitive (dare I say innate) and yet so many of us continue to follow traditional HR dogma when searching for work. Shame."
"The great news about your recommendations is that they work. The good news for those of us who use them is that few people are really willing to implement what you recommend, giving those of us who do an edge."
"I read your columns and have bought your book (and read it several times). It sits on my desk to refer to. It changed the way I look at job hunting 180 degrees! I recommend it to everyone who has need of it (and most have bought it!). If you do a sequel, I will buy that one, too."
"Nick, you probably know that you are the one writer in the country (or the world) that I never disagree with. You hit all the notes that I have been crying 'alarm' about since 1970 myself. You are uncannily on target, all the time. God bless your work, as always."
Dick Bolles, Author, What Color Is Your Parachute?
"Nick... what can I do but join the teeming throngs of folks chanting your praises? No-BS, tell-it-like-it-is folks like you are too damned rare. I'm emailing you to say
thanks. You are my new hero."
Mary Lee Chapman
"Just a note to let you know that your job seeking advice is pure gold. Nice to see somebody cut through the morass with intelligence."
"I am a retired USAF officer who just got furloughed out of four years with Northwest Airlines. I feel like I have just cut through a thunderstorm and found smooth air and bright sunshine on the other side. Thanks!"
"I like your no-nonsense approach to the search-related topics you tackle. You are not afraid to go against the grain and shake things up with a dose of reality and responsibility. I LIKE IT!"
