Robert,

If you haven't already, create a LinkedIn profile and post your rÃsumà there. If you have a personal web site where you can highlight your skills and post samples of your work, cross link the two sites. Also, list on a few of the job sites till you see which one(s) produce the most contacts for you.

Good luck!
John Allred
