I'm not familiar with HATT. I'll have to check it out. Thanks.

I already updated my LinkedIn profile and changed my title to include Seeking New Opportunities and posted to the main STC list. I've also contacted the recruiter who helped me find this last job (was a FT-Perm one too) and a couple of others who have been good at keeping in contact and helped me in the past. I've posted to the Lone Writers SIG of STC and to WorkQuest, an unemployment support group that STC Pittsburgh runs. I'm trying to get my name out there rather than sitting around feeling sorry for myself. I looked online today and I'm not eligible for unemployment so there's that too.

Sorry to hear about the job.

If you're a member of the HATT (Help Authoring Tools& techniques) Yahoo Group, be sure to post and let them know, too. Or join up and then let them know. Hiring managers hang out there.

If you're on LinkedIn, it might be a good idea to post a message that contains a link to your LinkedIn page, Twitter feed, etc.

Make it easier for people find you faster.

Well, I suppose writers are some of the first to go. I was laid off at the end of the day Thursday due to fiscal reasons. I would appreciate it if anyone could connect me with anyone who may be able to help me in my search or if you would be so generous as to share any leads. I am located in Pittsburgh, PA. Relocating is not an option at this time.

Thank you,
