The first step: See if you're eligible for unemployment benefits, and if so, apply for them right away. In some states you can do this online. Make sure you do not use this as a way to get out of work, though. This is something to assist you and your family as you search for a job.
12Update Your Resume
After being laid off from your job, you should not give up and quit. You need to update your resume and go off to other companies and reach out for a job. Do you think you're too old for a new job? Use your age to your advantage. Show off your experience in the workforce.
