Well, as of April 12, 2013 I am jobless.
So, I'm searching and searching. The field of fleet management is very specialized and the market for open jobs in the Dallas area is very limited. I love what I do when I get to do what I'm hired for. The fleet world is very small and the fleet managers across the country are a great group of people. I have made many lifelong friends in my 18 years in this field.
I send out resumes throughout the day but many times you feel like they are going out into the black hole that is the Internet. I'm a firm believer in networking these days in order to make contacts and get my name out there so I also send out emails to everyone I know. You never know who knows who.... it can't hurt.
I am also using this time to clean out a little around the house. Closets, drawers, etc.... I know if I land something pretty quick, I'll go to work and think.... "now why didn't I do that while I was off"?
It's scary but I have a great network of people across the country keeping an ear out for me.
