advice for an English-speaking expat????? (Vienna)

I recently moved to Vienna after getting married and have begun the long, difficult process of finding employment. I have about one year's experience in Communications / PR and I have a bachelors in Political Science (typical Anglo-Saxon, non-specific university degree). After a few interviews, with supposedly international companies I am noticing that it is really really difficult to be employed here if your German is merely 'passable' and not 'perfect'. I am not going to start a rant about how unfair this is, I realize I am living in Austria after all, but I would appreciate some pointers from other native English speaking ex-pats about their experiences finding work, and where I should be looking because as a recent university graduate, with limited German and limited patience, I have exhausted all the avenues I can think of.
