Per Janet's answer - Linked-In is what many companies and people use. You can look up companies and see who from there are on Linked-In and contact them.
Chamber of Commerce - most of websites and tied to many companies and people. Attend their events.
Economic Development Groups - similar to the Chamber.
Junior colleges - usually have networking events, and connected to industry.
A few different ways - first, in college, I got very involved in my major and my sorority. Both created friendships and mentors that would put me in touch with people that could help get me a job. My first job though was from telling my family members what I was looking for - be specific to find the right job for you - and one of my cousins worked for a company that had an entry level production position. I interviewed and got that first job. Early on then, everyone I met in the gaming industry, I got their business card or connected with them on LinkedIn which helped for future job opportunities. You have to be willing to introduce yourself to strangers or friends-of-friends to open the next door.
