Using your redundancy to undertake training in a new field is a big step – however it can be a step in the right direction if it leads to successful employment. Of course redundancy does not always provide financial aid.
If you don’t have access to redundancy entitlements then check out what government programs are currently available in your area. The economic stimulus packages that have been announced contain many initiatives that include financial aid to help you take a change in your career.
