The law doesn't really grant you a grace period after you loose your H1B job. If you think that you can find a job soon, than stick to finding a job and later you could file for a new H1b.
If not I would switch to a visitor's status as soon as possible. Depending on what country you are from, you may be eligible for an E2 visa and start your own company while you look for a job for example.
Feel free to call 619 819 92 04 for a free consultation.
You should file a new petition and then go outside the U.S. to get the visa stamp.
