Job hunting from out of state

I moved home several months ago after graduating hoping to find a job out of state, particularly where the publishing business is prevalent. However, although I have enough, if not more, relevant professional and education experience I've had a tough time catching a break-- most likely because of the economic situation and my out of state address. What can I do to stand out in this competitive industry and land a job out of state?

Recruiters not collecting resumes at Job Fairs

I’ve been to a few job fairs recently and some of the companies wouldn’t even take my resume. They told me to apply online. So why did I bother to buy a suit, print up resumes, and go to the Job Fair if they just want me to apply online?

Should I try to get a job through a temp agency?

Thanks for explaining about headhunters. But what about temp agencies? I just graduated and I was thinking about contacting some of them. Would I be wasting my time?
