Networking! Report Abuse
You've heard it before, but it's true! The very best way to find a job is by a referral from a frend, relative, or acquaintance. Tell EVERYONE you come in contact with that you arre looking for a (specific) job & WHAT YOU CAN DO. And ask them "Do you know anyone that's - even thinking - of hiring?"

Check Out The Company Report Abuse
With internet this is fairly simple, also ask others if they know or have heard anything at all about this company. Learn all you can BEFORE the interview - you may be asked what you know about the company. It can also provide you with some questions to ask at the interview (to show your interest).

Not the 'how much do you pay' kind. Things about the job that may not have already been mentioned - schedules, duties, expectations of company, or specific questions about the history, etc of the company.

Discouragement Report Abuse
Yes, you may get discouraged before that 'great' job comes along. Have someone (or several someones) go over things with you, talk about your skills, your interviews (or lack of), brainstorm your resume and job applications. Call your references, see if any calls have come into them - if so, what was said on BOTH sides.
