Lost My Job And Finding It Hard To Find A New Job


Recommended Posts

Dear Brothers and Sisters SSA...

Is there a pray I can do or anything as I feel lost and very low, time is running out for me...

I had a good job where I was happy but someone told my management team that I did a bad job in my last role (which I did not) which has made me loose this job without a chance to defend myself.

I have accepted this but now when ever I apply for a job.. it goes no further... no interview no nothing... make me feel like what is happening.

I have a family to look after, I have even done a adras but Im not sure what else to do....

Can anybody help me please...

I have even asked for forgiveness for anything I have done wrong....

Please do ardas for me.

Your Lost brother.

Dear LocalSikh WJKK WJKF

do mool mantra (ek oankar ... to nanak hosi bhi sach) for couple of hours a day it will do its magic :)

You are the best judge of your circumstances. I will ask you to take any step very carefully

Have you tried temping/contracting? if not try sending out CVs to different agencies and start getting short term contracts here and there at least you will have money coming in until you find something more suitable and permanent.

above mentioned is traditional approach. However, there is another way also. I hope you are good at what you do. There is a way to get back on job ladder it is risky but with Guru Ji's Kirpa I hope you will be fine.

Here is how, look for the role what you want to do on job site/news paper etc. which are directly posted by the recruiting company and not by the agencies. Do some research who is the department head and some back ground about the company itself. Once you have done that call the head directly over the phone (best option) and persuade them that you are very good at what you do and offer to work for FREE for a month/couple of week (based on your job role). Chances are when you say this with full confidence in your ability to do the job, you are most likely to be called in for practical interview. The element of risk is that if you are not as good you will be leaving without any pay! Therefore, I will advise to clear your objectives, targets and time frame required to achieve them before you start work.

Trust in god, if you have these hard times in front of you, its for you good only...

All the advice offered is very pertinent. I was in a similar situation some time ago (2-3 years ago) and am too based in the midlands.

On a sikhi level, you need to have total faith in Waheguru and believe that you will get a job - when doing your paarth i.e. over and above your usual nitnem, keep your goal in mind. I, by the grace of God, managed to get a job which I knew very little about and started on a similar wage and level to my previous role, I was very lucky indeed.

On a practical level I would not necessarily sign up to lots of agencies as the danger is your CV will be forwarded to the same company a number of times making you look desperate. I would suggest that you contact the agencies and state that prior to forwarding your CV they check with you in the first instance, if you’re suitable they will do this.

Secondly I would look at your transferable skills rather than the field you were in i.e. project management skills, people management skills, IT, organisational, analytical and diversify the roles that you apply for but stressing the advantages you can bring to a particular company.

Thirdly, when applying for jobs it is about quality and not quantity. Make sure your application are specific to the company you are applying for, do some research and then utilise this information is your covering letter, application form.

Also bare in mind that if something is hard or takes longer to fill in then people will be inclined to think the same and these would be worth spending additional time on.

You will be fine, trust Waheguru.

    • WHY?  Do you think I haven't figured out that our fudhoos like prancing about at any given opportunity by now?  I don't get the vid? Was he trying to ask her out for a date in the maximally fudhoo way possible?   Who were the other panchoday he roped in for his synchronised 'bruin' bundhoo dance?

    • We need to squarely face that given our current numbers, we'll have to deal with 'economies of scale' so we'll be unlikely to be able to sell at prices comparable to similar mass produced mainstream items that have a large consumer base. I think the above sells at around £20 for instance. I'd say we have enough exemplar career types right now, we need to connect kids to their heritage more than this in whichever way we can.  You point about relatability depends on where the kids are growing up and the character of Sikhs around them.  I don't know about the current generation, but in the recent past there were strong, brave Sikhs who confronted things like race attacks etc., so it shouldn't be too much of a stretch. Plus I noticed that a lot of Sikhs seem overtly 'nerdy' in the US - outright braces, cheesy gormless grins and bifocals - parents should take take to sharpen them out of this at a young age if they can. Was talking to someone who was thinking of trying produce some kids books, and the point about having puerile, non-based sakhis came out, the conclusion was that such works need to incorporate a slight gritty dark edge to avoid the kids turning into unrealistic lulloos when older.  Been thinking about that graphic novel I posted about previously, it's such a shame that the diaspora panth (who would be the main consumers) couldn't forkout the £9000 being asked for. That's like £3000 each from the UK, US and Canada - where we all know we have plenty of loaded apnay. If anyone reading is one of these loaded apnay - please support and fund these things and maybe have one less flash motor or slightly less designer clothes. 
    • They are identify culturally Hindu but non-believers in God. Usually liberal brahmins psychos in India journalists, Gandhi supporters.  noticed too with Punjabi left liberal journalists too anti Sikh but religion in Panjabi
    • Those toys of regular jobs aren't profitable from a purely business perspective. When have western toys been relatable to bache?
