Got out, started pounding the pavement, sending in resumes, filling out applications, searching the want ads. Went to an interview with the City, had to take some tests, went back for a second interview, never heard anything.
After a few weeks of rejection letters and no calls, one of my friends that graduated with me called and let me know the company they just started with was looking for more entry level programmers. Set up an interview, which was cancelled 4 times because the person I was to interview with was having some serious dental work, and everytime we had set an appointment, he had to cancel because he'd had to see the dentist, or else he was in a lot of pain. I had to cancel the 5 time because I had gone to a KC Royals game and screamed myself hoarse (great game
Finally we connected on the 6th try, interview went well, hired me on the spot.
Several weeks later I got a letter from the city stating I had passed the interview process and they were interested in offering me a job. And another company called with an offer about 4 weeks after starting work.
Persistance, spend time everyday job hunting, and definitely spend time "networking". Talk to friends, neighbors, etc. and let them know you are looking, they may know of companies that are hiring. Same goes to the people you graduated with, and people you meet.
I even went on an interviews with people just to practice interviewing. They weren't looking, but were willing to help me hone my skills. (again, a friend of a friend).
If it's not panning out in your area, be ready to expand the search to other parts of the country, if possible.
Best of luck!
