Angie's tips for landing a job:

Jump feet first!  Get your physical foot in the door.  Don't just rely on sending an electronic resume and cover letter.  Find a business that will appreciate your in-person initiative.

Dress for success.  You don't need to dress designer, but professionally.  Know the company's dress code.

Follow up.  Mail a thank-you letter immediately after your interview.

Have business cards on hand to give to potential employers and contacts.

Read books that offer more suggestions and advice, like Road Map to Success, whose contributors include Deepak Chopra, Amy Letke and Ken Blanchard.
