You may have lost your job recently. When you woke up the next morning, you realized that for the first time perhaps in years you have a completely open schedule. You had been working under a lot of pressure, but now you have received this setback to your career and to your ego. Isn’t this time for a vacation?
No. Take a week to relax and get organized, but don’t postpone the job search. You’ve got a major task ahead of you, and the sooner you get on with it, the sharper you’ll be. If you fall off a horse, you’re told to get back on the horse right away, to put the fall behind you. Follow that advice. You can take a vacation before you start your next job, but your top priority right now is to find that next one. Furthermore, being busy at your job search will get you over the shock of being laid off and help get you back on a payroll sooner.
