From A Job
Older generations such as the Lost , GI, and older members of the Silent generation portend that being terminated/fired from a job is worse than death and a career killer. They further maintain that once a person is terminated/fired, he/she has no career future to think of and at best, have to settle for any job available. My father, who was from the GI generation, asserted that once a person is terminated from a job, no employee wants you because you are damaged goods so to speak. However, younger members of the Silent generation, Boomers, Generation Xers and Yers portend that being terminated/fired is just the beginning and as one door closes, another opens. They further believe that being fired as a way to notify you that maybe you are in the wrong job. What do you think?
My generations' views on termination or being layed off is that it is a career killer. But having this happen to me twice, both after 10 years of employment, I survived. I am happy to say that I now do exactly what I want and get paid 7 times as much. But as for having a traditional career, I no longer have one, so in that way my generation is correct. Hope this answered your question.
