I'm sure at one time or another you were told it's who you know that'll help you get a good job. That's especially true today. While you might not directly know the person in charge of hiring, perhaps your friend's co-worker's boss might know of a job for you.
With the internet, there's no excuse for not networking. Places like Linkedin, Twitter, and even Facebook might be able to help you network your way to a great job. Don't forget the importance of meeting people face to face. If you don't have business cards, get them now and start handing them out daily.
Conferences are another great way to network and meet new people. One thing to remember is to keep in touch with people after you meet them. Don't just email them when you're looking for a job; instead try to touch base with them a couple times a year. By building a good network you'll be sure to land the perfect job.
