LinkedIn is a great networking website all professionals working or not should join.  You can connect with past and present colleagues and friends.  Here you make a profile of your professional career and network through your contacts.  Search through your contacts to see if any of them have contacts you may or may not know in your fields or even at certain companies.  This can be a great way to find the correct hiring managers or other recruiters of interest.  Recommendations can also be written about members.  You can find jobs and groups here as well.  It is free to join and a great networking resource.  They do offer a premium upgrade for $29.95 per month but the free resources are not to be passed up.

Project Work

If you have a specialization look for project work in your field.  Projects can be short or long term and often pay more than a full-time gig.  Successfully completed projects may lead to more projects or even full time work.  This can be a great place to network.  You can meet people at these companies who may put in a good word for you or use your services again.  Keep in contact with these people and see where it leads.

eBay Classifieds

Today I was checking on an item I had for sale on eBay and noticed a link to eBay Classifieds which I didn't even know existed.  I guess it evolved from a website known as Kijiji that eBay recently took control of.  I believe the new eBay classifieds was launched two days ago.  It is searchable by city and has a section for job postings.  I never thought I'd be able to look for jobs at eBay but now you can.  Another unknown job resource uncovered today at eBay.
