Q&A: Helping a Laid-off Spouse - Crucial Skills by VitalSmarts
My husband was terminated from his job last June because he was told it was "not a good fit." He worked from home and I could tell that during conference calls he was usually either blamed for not getting a job done on time or was defensive about the work he did. It's now March and still no job prospects. He is very defensive when I suggest job opportunities, networking, or re-training. I am to the point where I am shutting down because of his attitude, but finances are becoming critical. How do I talk to him about real solutions for job hunting and networking without him getting so defensive?
