What to do when you suffer a career setback #JobAdviceSA 03/04

President Zuma’s cabinet reshuffle, including the sacking of several high-profile ministers, has been making headlines for the last week. With that in mind we decided that it was a good time to answer questions about what to do when you are unfairly dismissed, demoted, or not promoted or offered a job when you feel that you deserve it.


The questions will be tweeted by @JobAdviceSA between 4pm and 5pm and we encourage participants to answer using A1, A2, etc. as well as using the hashtag #JobAdviceSA Anyone can ask or answer any other questions related to the topic during the chat.

Here are today’s questions:

Q1. What can you do if you feel you have been unfairly dismissed?

Q2. How should you handle it if you are unfairly demoted?

Q3. If someone else is promoted when you think it should’ve been you, what can you do?

Q4. If you genuinely feel you should have been offered a job is there anything you can do?

Our hosts @TimJBarry @Van_Raath and @WesMadz look forward to chatting with you and answering these questions and more this afternoon. See you at 4!
