I call it beating the bushes. I would stop everyplace that I thought might have a job I could do and put in an application. I have never gotten a job via an advertisment. Be assertive in an interview tell them what a great asset you will be and how hard you will work. If you have to take a job you don't really want or that the pay is less than you need just to get by. Its easier to look for a job when you already have one. Hopefully something will turn up QUICK, best of luck to you.
