Online Job Search Isn't Working, Should I Go Offline?

Dear Experts, I have recently hit a roadblock in my job search. I've been using the internet to job search and network, but most of my efforts have lead to dead ends thus far. Should I take my job search offline by going to the companies I want to work for and drop off my resume? If it is recommended, how do I network while there? Here is how our T.A.P. experts answered this question: Q#234 You need to explore all options when searching. send out R&C, drop off, join industry assn. leverage ur contacts.
