This all depends on the experience that you have as of now. The media has been feeding us bullshit about how recession has finally ended and the job market is getting a lot better, but I think it's still a bitch to get a job these days.
For younger students or people with little to no experience has pretty much zero chance of finding a job since they have to compete against those who are now jobless, but still have shitloads of good work experience.
And because not working for a while won't look pretty to the employers, it might be a good idea for you to be more open-minded and search for jobs that may be "below your standard". I think a job in either retail or customer service fields where it's almost always in demand isn't a bad idea. If you are really desperate, it might be even easier to apply and get a job at fast food chains such as McDonald.
Also, keep in mind that, unless if it's the only method of application, applying in person will land you with a job faster than applying online. If you believe that you have a good presentation skill and you can display a good first impression of yourself, you should walk around downtown areas, search for places with NOW HIRING sign, prepare your resume for the position they are requesting and come back to apply in person.
Well, I hope this was helpful and I wish you best of luck! I know that constantly applying for jobs can be extremely frustrating - trust me, I've been there, done that - but if you keep at it, you will find something. Just try not to be too picky about where you are applying, and a little off-the-Internet, "outdoor" research would do you good too because not all places advertise their employment opportunities online.
