One of the best job hunting tips that I have heard lately is to do something for your job search every day. On busy or uninspired days, this may seem like a tall order. But take inspiration from this guy, Jonathan Mann, who is writing a new song and posting it online every day (where potential employers can see his skills in action). The ditties are kooky and actually very entertaining in a "Flight of the Conchords" kind of way, especially given the low production input. My personal faves are the ode to Paul Krugman and "From My Front Door, Vol. 1"
