Got fired today. All my above the line work got positive nods. My CD was overly picky about every word in my email blasts and collateral. I’m sure that’s what did it. Luckily I have a produced radio spot, another on the way, and tv spot being shot this month. Any advice?

Take time off if you can afford it. Even a month. And I mean like staycation, see friends and family, do hobbies. Absolutely refrain from looking for another job for at least a month. You will be happy you did, I promise.

Make sure the producer sends you a copy of your spot.

It’s going to be okay, it happens to all of us. (Happened to me twice.)

Give your self an assigned period of time to take a breath, maybe two or four weeks. Then on the assigned day, get your portfolio together and tell everyone you know you’re looking for a job.

Pros: ?

Cons:
- culture deck is something else: if they think they can do better than you, they will just let you go

- they think they’re the Yankees: if you’re batting.385, but they think there is someone out there who can bat .400, you’re going to get fired

- they will openly discuss at a meeting why you suck

- Reed Hastings' leadership style was once described as being "unencumbered by emotion". A VP once told him he's not a good listener and tends to be unempathetic.
