Re: New Job Search (How?)
I've been looking to relocate back out southwest (AZ/NM) and have been looking as well. So far the internet sites like Careerbuilder, Indeed, Monster, etc., have not been working as expected. They tend to list jobs that are have long since been filled, in hopes of you signing up with them. Going directly to the company web sites or calling them has been much better. Update your resume and start applying, hopefully they'll respect your privacy and understand you don't want your current employer to find out that you are job hunting. Thats tough to do when you need to add a job reference though.
I'm nervous about leaving after working in my current position for 17 years. Hard to leave a secure job in this shaky economy.
Good luck man!
