You'll negotiate a better severance package if you first analyze what is behind it. Perhaps the company is trying to downsize its headcount, then farm out the work to consultants or part-timers. Offer to stay on in those capacities. Even if you'll be looking for a new job, that process is always easier when you already have one. Under this arrangement, you'd likely cut yourself off from the severance pay the second you find a new, steady paycheck. That's not such a bad compromise.
