Getting laid off can be paralyzing, especially when you have to start hunting for jobs, a task that can seem insurmountable. But when hope was dim for three women who fought to regain employment, they remained optimistic and applied their career skills to successfully land in new fields. Read on to see their advice about making new career moves.

37, Portland, OR

Life after the layoff:Went from full-time bank vice president to part-time website researcher/writer.

Best advice:

• Don't feel you have to settle. As a corporate executive, Sarah was used to a certain level of responsibility. She sought options that let her tap her high-level skills. "Part-time doesn't have to mean entry-level," she says.
• Put in the same effort. "Look for a part-time job the same way you would a full-time one," says Sarah. She researched the company, wrote a well-targeted cover letter, and thought about how to sell herself if she snagged an interview—and it all paid off.

37, Columbus, OH

Life after the layoff:Started a home-staging business after losing her technical fashion design job.

Best advice:

• Do your homework. Knowing that she had to confirm the viability of her business idea before jumping in, Felicia arranged meetings with several realtors and interior designers "to see if I had what it took." She also researched the industry to make sure it was growing.
• Step outside your comfort zone. "Once I became a smallbusiness owner, I quickly realized that I had a lot to learn," says Felicia. So she took an array of college business courses—no matter how intimidating.

Life after the layoff:Used her know-how as a marketing executive to become a market research consultant.

Best advice:

• Know your market. Who will be served by your unique skills? "Research who your target customers and clients will be and how to reach them," she says.
• Be hands-on. Volunteer at a few business or professional organizations—serve on committees, help with membership—wherever the group needs willing hands. "You have to be active once you join these groups," she says.
