Sorry to hear about your situation. Others have mentioned the job
hunting meat markets ;-) but some other options I haven't seen yet
include the STC, the TechWr-L web site, and various mailing lists.
Above all, leverage your professional contacts. If you don't have any,
start making them now. How? STC, mailing lists, conferences, former
employees, etc. The absolute best way to find a job doesn't start with
a posting, but with a conversation.
