I've never bothered to find a job, they have always found me. In my experience, having family, friends, recruiters looking works much better than doing it myself.

1. Tell family, friends, people at church, etc. you are looking for a job. Most of them will get a bonus if they are the entry point for your job.

2. Take entry level, don't be proud, and just take what you can get (but make sure it is relevant to your career choice). Once you have a job, it is easier to find the next one.

3. Get in touch with recruitment agencies. They are miserable bottom feeders, but they will get you that first job (and every once in a while, they are really great).

4. Look for a job, like it is your job, make sure you apply somewhere every day.

5. Commute. I live in a very rural area, so I just have a very long commute. This will work for a while, until you are happy with the job and find a place closer to where you work.
