The economy is pretty good in Utah. In fact, according to U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics there are only 7 states with a lower unemployment rate, but what actions should you take if you know you are getting let go, or dare I say FIRED 

While you don’t want to take anything that is not yours, you probably have some personal things you have brought to work. Gather those things in a central location. Also look for consumables that can’t be tracked. Nothing feels better than drying your hands on paper towels from the mostly depleted roll that walked out with you.  

Even if you are getting fired er, I mean your career is heading in a different direction, don’t be afraid to ask your supervisor what information would be OK to take with you. Remember most of us, including your higher-ups, don't like being a jerk. Let them be a hero and help you soften the blow. Make note of projects you are proud of and be ready to back them up when you get permission.

There are a bunch of tools to back up your data like Google Takeout that can let you back up emails, your drive, and even stuff that you did on your own that got your fired so you can take it with you.

It seems counterintuitive but instead of running out embarrassed, take some time to do some last-minute networking. Not everyone hates you even if your picture is on the company dart board. Get contact numbers from friends and allies that you can use as professional references, and from enemies that you can later prank call.
