Should you stay or should you go? If you don't have things that are tying you down, and have a bit of wanderlust, this may be the perfect time to relocate. If you've always dreamed about living in New York, Boston, Atlanta, San Francisco—wherever—turn this global village into your resume playground! Look for jobs in places that feel right to you, and then literally 'go for it!' The grass may not be greener, but the paychecks may be bigger, or the cost of living less. Be in the know about whether you should go.
Network, network, network. Don't be shy to ask family, friends, and even old co-workers to help you in your search. You'd be surprised at how many great jobs this resource may be able to provide.
Keep your chin up! Rome wasn't built in a day, and you didn't get fired in a day (okay, even that happens every now and then!) Don't get discouraged if you send out lots of resumes before you start getting interviews, this happens to just about everyone. To find the right job takes time and patience.
