Word of mouth seems to be a great way to get noticed in this industry. Has that been anyone else's experience as well?

My experience with being hired is that I don't even see HR until my first week of work to fill out paperwork, so I would say in my case word of mouth is everything.

Also note that I was stably employed before the downturn and am still with the same employer so YMMV in the current situation.
