Spamming the web doesn't work. I sent out a few CV's each day (fewer than 12), write a proper cover letter for each (in the body of the email, not as an attachment), and make one or more follow-up telephone calls for each position I apply for. Even in a really mean job market this usually got me a client submittal a day. Eventually an interview a week. Keep this up for long enough and eventully you hit, as I eventually did. When I bodged an interview I analyzed why and studied to improve my knowledge for the next interview. I did my SCJP and SCWCD which helped get me past the programming tests.
