Unfortunately, Midgi is probably right to a large extent. Many big companies have to advertise for equal opportunity and other reasons, even if they have someone in mind for the position.

It stands to reason that if a co. wants you, they'll contact you. However, you don't lose much by calling them - what's the worst that can happen, except you are wasting your time.

Some better ways to land a job are through contacts (I'm sure you know that already) and applying to positions that are listed in journals relevant to the field you are interested in.

What field or area of work interests you? Have you taken advantage of your school's placement services?

I wish you all the good luck in the world! I know how hard it is with the economy in the mess that it is in.
