The only other posts my company has are over 90 miles away from my house. I already feel like shit driving 100 miles a day (50 miles each way), so 180+ would just be insane.
This is pretty much what I was doing, but it was 79 miles each way.

Construction?

Most of the times knowing someone can get you the job. Doesn't always workout but it increases ur chances. My friend has been working at the it department at a bank for almost a decade and he regularly hooks up ppl with jobs in that department if they have previous it experience. He put in a word for me but it didn't even get me an interview since I have no related experience :/ I know plenty about computers though. But thats how life works.

Professor's email and a friend's referral. Friend also worked there. So I emailed the manager, as they were looking for web programmers with PHP experience, got in touch, and he asked me for an interview almost immediately, surprised it was that quick. But yea, so basically I was in. Only an Intern but it's a great start.

My favorite part of getting that job is that I didn't have to fill out an annoying application, which I hate. Just sent a resume and cover letter.

After my first job which I got through my school's job fair, they all came through references. You're never guaranteed a job but almost always an interview. With so many resume's it's hard to get your resume looked at which is why it's so useful to have a current employee or ex-employee forward your resume'.

Luck of the draw. I started working at this pharma plant back in 2001 on a temp basis because my dad was there. Kept moving up every couple of years or so. 12 years later...

I feel for you man, I was unemployed for a long time. I applied everywhere and took many odd jobs to make ends meet.

I ate my pride and applied at Macy's, a last resort out of desperation. How did I get it? I just went online and applied Macysjobs.com I happened to apply during the holiday hiring stampede and I've been there for 3 years.

Give it a shot man, good luck!

Start making friends with your coworkers. If there is a company event then go to it. Any community projects take on some. Network and make friends.

Got my first internship through my brother's gf, because her sister was an accounting manager there and they needed an intern. They hired me full time after 3 months. I got bored after some time started applying for jobs abroad through the internet. IBM called me for a phone interview, and after I passed they called me for an additional 2 in person, travel expenses paid. After a couple of weeks they called again me to offer me the position and I took it. Now this current job I have I got it because I knew from a friend here they had a good position they were looking to cover, so I went in person and asked to see the hiring manager to offer myself. Two days later I had the job, and now I'm a team leader in financial forecasting.

Well, I hooked up with a recruiter after applying for one job (I think through Monster) I didn't get.

The recruiter still thought they could place me somewhere, and did. I worked there for a while, then ended up getting a different job through the same recruiter.

Now a days it seems like recruiters contact me every day through linkedin. To the point where I have begun ignoring them.
