I signed the severance agreement and sent it back yesterday. I also submitted the unemployment application. I am now completely and utterly free from my ex-company. Yesterday I truly started my job search. I had been doing a little here and there but yesterday I really dove in head first. I talked to recruiters and poured through job Web sites. The real issue I see is being able to differentiate the real jobs from the crap. Let me tell you, there is a lot of crap out there.

All will be fine.
