I found a blog from a year and a half ago that gives some good job seeking advice. One thing that threw me off was the advice to be professional and classy.

And I know people who have gotten jobs from conversations they started on airplanes or waiting in line at the movies. That is bold networking.
Another tip this same blog had was physically visiting the office of a company at which you have applied. You are following up, which is good. You are showing that you are proactive, which is good. And you are initiating a conversation and putting a face (and a personality) to a name, which is good.
Nobody is going to hand you a job on a silver platter, and just looking on job boards probably is not going to cut it in today's business world. You really have to leave your couch and dare mighty things.
