    Preethi,
    You can create a profile in Linkedin too. Add recommendations from your former employer, colleagues. Job search is also integrated into linkedin.. you can simultaneously build your career network there. Nowadays networking is more effective than simply floating your resume. Consultancies are also a good alternative. But be sure about their credibility. Some desi companies are notorious in exploiting freshers, sadly.
    Good Luck! :thumbsup

    Thought 'Non-Bay Area' people are also allowed in this thread..:hide:
    :) I just posted some generic 'locale free' information on job seeking, Preethi. Besides, I like LinkedIn. :thumbsup So dished out some free campaign. :biglaugh
