A good driving instructor will tell you to always be looking ahead of your car and not just as far as your front bumper. This is also good advice in these tenuous economic times, when looking and planning ahead can turn the potential disaster of a layoff into an opportunity instead.
Sites like indeed.com and Simplyhired.com are index websites that go out and draw vacancies from all the job boards everywhere. Put in your area of search and both sites will send emails whenever a vacancy is posted in your chosen professional areas. The only main site it doesn't pick up on is craigslist.org.
As prepared as you may be for a layoff, it's still an emotional time in your life. Understand that feelings such as anger, sadness and confusion are only natural. Allowing family and friends to be your support system will help see you through this transitional time.
Remember: A layoff can open the door to a whole new and exciting chapter in your life! Just keep a level head, a positive attitude and have your vision focused on what might be up ahead.
