Allison's comments are pretty good with one small thought. Going direct is not always the best route.

In certain cases, having an executive recruiter represent you with a targeted company can significantly improve your chances. Note that I didn't say all the time but some times.

If you are comfortable with the recruiters you know, don't hesitate to ask them about their relationships with target companies. Sometimes their relationships can open doors you might not be able to on your own.

I like Allison’s perspectives here. Today’s technology allows you to customize your resumes and offers you access to many job boards and networking sites to advance your career and boost your name exposure. But technology is not the be all and end all. You need to cultivate relationships and build a network of colleagues, former colleagues, friends of colleagues and former colleagues, and influential friends of friends. Technology is important in managing your career today, but there is no adequate substitute for face-to-face communication – and there never will be.
