As my examiner for my first instructor rating said to me after I passed with him, very good-naturedly, you're now just another unemployed flight instructor. ;)

You know the routine. Hit the bricks and spam the universe with your resume. Follow-up and follow-up some more. Print up some business cards.

My instructor used to hustle up business through WINGS seminars. Try that. Along with attending the seminar, people need three hours of instruction, including one hour of airwork, one hour of instruments and one hour of takeoffs and landings to earn their Wings. A lot of these folks have their own airplanes.

Just an idea. Good luck with this new phase of your career.
