Talk to strangers, who might open employment doors.

When you're looking for a job, toss "Don't talk to strangers" out the window. For example, when you're standing in a line at your favorite store, make a positive comment about the weather or a product found only at that store. If the people nearby ignore you, drop the conversation. But if someone responds, don't be shy about mentioning that you're looking for a job. Believe in serendipity!
