People who have been made redundant do not have to find themselves without a job for life, it has been suggested.
Cheryl Morgan, a Jobsite.co.uk careers counsellor, revealed how potential employers will interview a quality candidate regardless of their background.
"The only reason a recruiter would look badly on redundancy would be if there were suspicions that you might have left for other reasons," she stressed.
Ms Morgan also emphasised that there is a "big difference" between being out of work because of changes made within a company and personal negligence.
Candidates ultimately need to be open and honest with their applications and make their potential employers aware why they were made redundant.
A new study from the Centre for Economics and Business Research (CEBR) and the Taxpayers’ Alliance predicts that in a pessimistic double dip recession the national debt could spiral to over £2.3 trillion.
The Treasury’s projections for the economy imply unemployment of 2.8 million people in 2011, whilst the CEBR’s model estimates that number could instead reach 3.8 million.
