Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.
I believe I have answered this question for you in the past. Do you have anything new to relate or are you looking for a 'second' opinion?
This is different request. I am asking if I CAN work at a competitor, since I was let go..
Non-compete agreements are completely unenforceable in California (pursuant to business and professions code section 16600), so you are entirely free to work for a competitor to the company.
The only thing you cannot do is to share or reveal tradesecrets, including any list of customers or clients that you have from your previous employer.
Please remember to rate my answer positively so I get credit for my work!
Thanks and best of luck!
