[vox] No One's Immune

My wife got laid off recently when CGI closed their Roseville office, and
she's now looking for work as a technical writer or documentation specialist
(something like that).

After several months of job hunting myself, I've decided that the Internet --
specifically, sites like DICE and Monster and so on -- sucks as a resource for
finding job openings.  Everyone else is looking on the Internet as well, and
very few jobs that actually exist are listed there.

So my question is, does anyone have any ideas where my wife could contact to
inquire about technical writing jobs?  I'm trying to convince her that the
internet isn't going to magically find her a job, but am having a hard time
doing so.

Here's another question: for all of those still employed out there in good
jobs, how did you find your job?
