Elusive job! (Toronto)

Hello all,

this is just a shout for help to all the more "connected" people out there.
Recently became a PR and now looking for a permanent job. Have been scouring all the relevant TO job sites and posting my resume with a variety of recruiters. Have also directly approached employers.......Seems all this correspondence goes into a black hole and disappears.

I am thinking I am totally missing a vital component to successfully finding a job and that is knowing the right people and networking myself into a new role!! But you usually meet people at work, and since I am NOT working (not for lack of trying to do temp work) how am I to achieve this???

I am running out of ideas. Any insightful comments are welcome!

PS: My last job was as a Global Account Manager for Avery Dennison (UK) and I am also fluent in Spanish.
