HOW TO SURVIVE LOSING YOUR JOB
“If your work is not mission critical, you're a 'luxury'employee.”

Take These Steps -- On Stealth Mode
Work harder: It will be noticed, and may make a difference.
Update your resume and skills: Decide whether, if you were let go, you would look for a similar position or go in a new direction.
Network: Put out feelers but keep it on the down low. While you have a job is the best time to network; look through your contacts and ask ‘How can I help this person?
Start saving: A layoff budget is the most important thing to have when planning your departure.
Use benefits: If you’ve been putting off a dreaded dentist’s appointment or doctor’s visit, do it now, while your company will still cover the costs.
Gather info: Quietly remove any email addresses, contact details, personal files, and belongings you’ll need (but be careful about removing private company data).
