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


Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • I am in big dilemma.  As we all know that waheguru ji everywhere. I also understand that it is important to go to gurudwara sahib as well. My question is that if i do ardaas at home or any other place other than  gurudwara sahib, will it be heard and acknowledged by guru sahib or it is always important to go to gurudwara sahib and do ardaas at gurudwara sahib for guru sahib to acknowledge it? I always do path and ardaas at home in front of harmandir sahib photo or hazur sahib photo  and then for important things i make a list and go to gurudwara sahib to do the ardaas there because i think that if i do ardaas in front of guru granth sahib then it will be more accepted by guru sahib. On the other hand i think that if i am doing ardaas in front of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib photo and redoing the same ardaas at gurudwara sahib, i feel that i am not respecting the authority of harmandir sahib or hazur sahib. Because of all this, I wait to find a quite time at gurudwara sahib when there is less or no sangat  so that I can open my list and read and do ardaas spend 10-15 minutes on average to do ardaas. If there are lot of people, i can't do ardaas due to people in the lineup and I don't want to block access to them while i am spending so much time doing ardaas. If i leave without doing ardaas then i am embarrassed, disappointed and sad and then OCD kicks in. Kindly help!    
    • Play/do gurbani, simran and keertan often, make sure you do your nitnem, use sarbloh and wear sarbloh!
    • process is to find a vichola and then the vichola talks between your family and theirs. The process should be similar to how rishta is done in India side!
    • No. If you read the histroy of Guru jis' times and even centuries later, usually marriages were done in childhood. Then when they were old enough to start their grihast jeevan partnership, the bride is brought over to her husbands's house in muklawa ceremony. 4-5 years engagement is silly. You get Anand Karaj now, and then after university she you do muklawa, that is much more in the guidelines!
    • you need to explain that even the devtay kept their kes, and is a part of the ancestors' culture, that sikhi is also preserving the kshatriya and dharmik cultures!
