Was laid off Dec 7 '07 with 6 months severance. Started the new job Feb 18 '08. Got to double dip for four months. Best of luck to all of you on your job search.

Best of luck to all of you struggling right now. I was laid off in December...the last in my group to go...and it ended up being the best thing to happen to me. I found a better job that I really enjoy a few weeks later, and spent that first paycheck on my starter kit.

The only words of encouragement I can offer is to really stick with the job hunt and don't get too distracted with HBT. There are jobs out there, just a bit more competition. And once you land that job you want, the next batch will taste that much better...

I have certainly been there more than once. Everyone just keep applying. Apply for anything and everything that is remotely close to what you do. Even if you interview for a job you don't want or doesn't fit at all, its interview practice and it keeps you busy. When you do get a phone call, you will sound more confident because you have been busy.
