looking for advice on job hunting

So I've decided that I need a new job. I've never been that happy at my current job, but I figured it was a good place to be for a recent college grad and would look good on my resume (my company does sensor development and data analysis, mostly for the government). Unfortunately, it reminds me too much of the movie Office Space. We even have a guy at the company named Michael Bolton, I sh*t you not. Time for me to leave.

I've got a few friends in good places, so if push comes to shove I'm not really worried about finding something, but I really want to learn how to find new jobs. I've tried doing half-hearted searches on the web, and I've used HotJobs and Monster.com before, but I haven't found anything exciting.

Is there a good way to go out and find companies I'm interested in? I'm not necessarily looking for job listings (although if anyone has recommendations I'd love to hear them) so much as company listings. I just don't know the best way to go about looking, and I end up getting frustrated, which makes me procrastinate. I'd appreciate any advice ya'll could give.

Erick.

p.s. I'll definitely be around for Seven Samurai this Sunday, btw.
