Are Your Job Hunting Skills Rusty?

I have recently been the victim of a downsizing. It’s been difficult to mentally deal with it, since I’ve been at the same company for more than 15 years and I haven’t looked for a job in 20 years. The last job I got, I didn’t even have to find—it found me. Someone I know recommended me and I interviewed and got the job. Now I am facing a job hunting situation and I’m pretty rusty about the whole process. I need some pointers to get me started.
