Tips from Dr. D. 

If you don't have a resume, put it on your "to do" list now! If you have one, remind yourself to update it now. You never know when on the spur of the moment you might need a current resume.

I also found this article from the Gainesville Sun useful - even though it is directed at someone who has been out of the job market for a while.
Go for it!
