"Find out about potential job opportunities through multiple sources. No job board will carry even a small portion of the possibilities that are out there. You should also touch base with those that you haven’t talked to in some time. It won’t hurt to ask and see if they’ve recently heard of something. Old co-workers and people at church are some of your best contact possibilities."
