Sorry to hear that. Got laid off from my lucrative high-tech sales job back in April 2009. Job market's brutal out there. Took me 3 months of unfruitful searching before I realized that I needed to start my own company rather than try to get someone to hire me. Now I'm the boss, and my company is growing rapidly. There is opportunity in adversity. Sometimes what appears to be the end is really the beginning of something better.
If you need help with networking, I have one of the largest Linkedin networks on the planet and you're welcome to join it. It's a great resource for finding recruiters and hiring managers. Here's the link: http://www.linkedin.com/in/markgessner
