They may be kicking you out, but make sure you’ve read the fine print. Go over the company manual to confirm that you were given everything you were entitled to. And if not, don’t be afraid to dispute their severance package. Double-check policies to make sure they aren’t cheating you out of some of the perks to which you are entitled.
Keep a file folder handy with clips, memos, reviews, and other important documents that attest to your work ethic, value, and accomplishments. These won’t save your job, but they will be invaluable as you begin searching for new work. Grab it before you go. (Or, if possible, keep such documents at home.) Also, keep a record of how much business you brought in, money you saved the company, awards you won, or clips of projects and events you planned. You’ll wow potential employers with tangible proof of your abilities.
