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.

    • Umm, that's totally irrational, bro. There are plenty of prakash-dara Singhs in Punjab (less than we'd like, but still plenty). No one cares that you are sabat soorat. It isn't 1986. You can walk around in chola, kurta-pajama, or jeans. Whatever. If you want the look @dallysingh101 is referring to, just go into a cheap clothing shop (not a Western-style mall) and buy some shirts for 250 rupees or a track suit for 2000 rupees. You'll get the cheap stuff made in some sweatshop in Bombay.
    • The Mind is Jyot Saroop (Waheguru), but the mind is under the influence of five evils… Through Naam Simran( Rememberance), the mind will begin to detach from evil, and get back to its original form ( MANN TU JYOT SAROOP HEH)… Until the mind breaks free from the five evils, one will go through the cycle of paap and punn….which leads to Karma… Naam Simran destroys past karma, and prevents new karma coming into fruition… I did this, I did that… This non realisation of the Jyot Saroop gives rise to paap and Punn, which in turn gives birth to suffering and misery…
    • I agree we're not born with sin like the Christians think. Also I agree we have effects of karma. But Gurbani does state that the body contains both sin and charity (goodness): ਕਾਇਆ ਅੰਦਰਿ ਪਾਪੁ ਪੁੰਨੁ ਦੁਇ ਭਾਈ ॥ Within the body are the two brothers sin and virtue. p126 Actually, we do need to be saved. Gurbani calls this "udhaar" (uplift). Without Satguru, souls are liable to spiritual death: ਜਿਨਾ ਸਤਿਗੁਰੁ ਪੁਰਖੁ ਨ ਭੇਟਿਓ ਸੇ ਭਾਗਹੀਣ ਵਸਿ ਕਾਲ ॥ p40 Those who have not met Satguru Purakh are unfortunate and liable to death. So, yeah, we do need to be saved, and Guru ji does the saving. The reason Satguru is the one to save is because God has given Satguru the "key" (kunji): ਸਤਿਗੁਰ ਹਥਿ ਕੁੰਜੀ ਹੋਰਤੁ ਦਰੁ ਖੁਲੈ ਨਾਹੀ ਗੁਰੁ ਪੂਰੈ ਭਾਗਿ ਮਿਲਾਵਣਿਆ ॥੭॥ In the True Guru's hand is the key. None else can open the door. By perfect good fortune the Guru is met. p124
    • That's unfortunate to hear. Could you give any more information? Who was this "baba"? He just disappeared with people's money? Obviously, you should donate your money to known institutions or poor people that you can verify the need of through friends and family in Punjab.
    • Sangat ji,  I know a family who went Sevewal to do seva sometimes end of 2019. They returned last year in great dismay and heart broken.  To repent for their mistakes they approached panj pyaare. The Panj gave them their punishment / order to how t make it up which, with Kirpa, they fulfilled.  They were listening to a fake Baba who, in the end, took all the "Donations " and fled sometime over a year ago. For nearly 4 years this family (who are great Gursikhs once u get to know them) wasted time and effort for this fake Baba. NOT ONLY this one fam. But many, many did worldwide and they took their fam to do seva, in village Sevewal, city Jaitho in Punjab. In the end many families lost money in thousands being behind this Baba. The family, on return, had to get in touch with all the participants and told them to stop.  I am stating this here to create awareness and we need to learn from whom we follow and believe. It's no easy but if we follow the 3 S (Sangat, Simran and Seva) we will be shown the light. As I am writing this the family in question have been doing the same since 2008 onwards and they fell for this Baba... it is unbelievable and shocking.  This am writing in a nutshell as am at work on my break so not lengthy but it deserves a great length.  Especially the family in question, who shed light on youngsters about Sikhi 20 plus years!!
