You’re Fired –2020 Edition

That’s almost always bad news, and in 2020, it’s happening more and more. But does this terminal message have a silver lining? Termination training compensation can be used for business English courses. It’s employer-funded training to help you transition to the next job or career

There are many English phrases associated with termination:

  • You’re fired.
  • You’re sacked.
  • You’re laid off.
  • Your services will no longer be required.
  • Your position has been eliminated or made redundant.
  • Your contrast will not be renewed.

No matter how it’s said, it feels pretty rotten. Bur there may be some good news. If you will receive a “termination compensation and training” package, those funds can be used for Business English and job interview training.

Many workers preparing for job interviews choose a combination of the courses below to professionalize their English.

  • private English course
  • mobile video app training
  • business English weekly training
  • intensive business English course

If you have not been in the job market recently, you may not realize how necessary good English has become and how often job interviews include an English component. And of course, once re-employed, your daily tasks will likely include frequent speaking, emailing and meeting – in English.

The intent of termination compensation training is to help employees successfully transition to new jobs. If your English is “not the best,” English training will be a very good way to use that money. And please note that this sort of educational/professional training is btw free, which means you can use the full amount of the compensation.
