I'm freelance so when I want more clients, I go "head hunting"--I research whatever companies are in my niche, then waltz in and flash my million-dollar smile. I LOVE MY JOB!

I went to the AIA (American Institute of Architects) website, looked up all the registered architects in my area and went to their websites and sent in my resume whether they wanted it or not.

At my previous job, I was old fashioned and looked at the newspaper. At the one before that, I had a friend who worked there who recommended me for the position.

As I've just moved countries, I found my job through a network of about 15 recruiters, and everyday I'd ring them and see what was happening, and apply for all the new jobs on the online boards. I ended up being offered two roles, both the same pay at the same company (one was a contractor to this companny) and the contractor paid more! LOL so I went with them.

Networking and going to Bar events (that's the legal Bar, not a bar bar ;)) when I was a judicial law clerk (a job I found, btw, through a former co worker!). Networking is the way to go :)

Word of mouth. I would get recommended by other people in the industry who knew and worked with me.

When I was applying for my first job, I sent over 70 resumes out by mail, about 30 by e-mail, and a few by fax. I went online and got a list of places under 'graphic design' or some type of design. I also looked for advertising agencies as well. One of the 70 resumes I mailed ended up being pick up by my current employer.

i was searching and also had my resume posted on sites... a recruiter contacted me and bingo! i wasn't looking for this job, i was looking for something more corporate... but i am working in my dream office with a wonderful team - we are more like a family than colleagues :-)

A former co-worker needed an admin assistant and thought of me. I didn't even have to interview, she just called and offered me the job.

Monster.com ---I was a freak that would scroll through about 30 job boards and company websites daily when I was unemployed. My goal was to really search but to carefully apply to at least 25 jobs a day. Sometimes it was harder and then sometimes I would just luck up and find a posting on my city job board.

Sent in my resume even though no open position was advertised, and was lucky enough to be hired.

neither of my post-law school jobs were advertised, now that I think about it. I got one from having interned there previously (a spot opened up and they just gave it to me and didn't interview anyone else). The other a friend told me about. No one else was interviewed for it, either.

I also started out as a temp and after three months, the work never ended and kept increasing actually so they asked me to stay on full-time.

I replied to a newspaper ad a year before I got hired; they kept my materials on file and called me when they had an opening.

Connections. ;) My boss at my previous job helped me a lot. The position I applied for (I've since been promoted) wasn't advertised.
