Tell your friend not to panic, the job market is a lot better now than it was a year or two ago. I was laid off at the end of october, and am starting a new (engineering) job in 10 days. (13 weeks total not working)

1. Relax, work thru the anger, blow off some steam, then put together a professional resume.

Try to communicate all the valuable skills that you have, talk about your successes - sell yourself. Tell the absolute truth on your resume, but with a positive perspective - it's easy for a background check to detect any lies, so don't risk it.

2. Network. Contact all the people you have had a good working relationship with in the past.
(Linked-in is a good tool for that)

3. Watch the web for job postings - you might be surprised how many openings there are! One of the more helpful sites is:

Be creative about your options, but don't bother applying for jobs you aren't at least 80% qualified for.

4. Be POSITIVE. An enthusiastic attitude about your future (and the opportunities you are talking to people about) will only help you.

Everybody gets laid off sooner or later, so don't take it personally - employers won't hold it against you. Having a good friend (like Clint) to confide in helps to put everything in perspective.

5. When you interview, have some questions ready about the company, the job, and the challenges the employees face. Make sure to find out if the job fits you - if it doesn't feel right, then you might be better off waiting for another one to come along. (Are the people happy working there?)

An interview is like a first date, it's natural to feel a little out of place. Do your best, don't sweat any small mistakes you make, and put your best foot forward. Let them know you are ready to help them with their problems.

Don't bring up your problems (if you need a week off in June, you can talk to them about it after you get the offer).

Send a short "thank you for the interview" email. Let them know you are interested! (it might be the tie breaker that gets you an offer)

6. Waiting is HARD! Time slows down when you aren't working. Stay busy, do something you enjoy. Try to make your time off a bit like a low budget vacation - do the things you've been wanting to do when you have enough time.

With any luck, you will have a new job long before you get to the end of your "to do" list.

There is a good chance that you will be better off at your new job, than you were in your last one. ;) {I'm convinced that I will be!}

Best of luck,
