Hi Steve, I am sorry to hear about your lay-off. It's never an easy
thing. One thing - do you belong to STC (Society for Technical
Communication - www.stc.org)? If so, the local chapter for your area may
have a list of available jobs. Also, check out Monster and similar sites
and also network like crazy locally. You might make a list of companies
in your area (e.g. tech firms) and check their websites for available
writing positions as well as sending out prospecting letters or emails.
Good luck with your job search and keep in touch.
