Home for break - how can I most effectively search and apply for local computer science jobs?

I'm a senior Computer Science major at a small, highly ranked liberal arts college that is not at all known for their CS program. I'm home for winter break (my last one!), and I'm looking for a job after graduation. I've already managed to get rejected from the top corporations (Microsoft, Amazon, etc), so I'm looking for more mid-sized companies to apply to. I'm home in the Seattle area for winter break, and Seattle is one of the places I'd like to end up after graduation.
My question is this: How can I best use being physically in the Seattle area to my advantage when I apply to Seattle-area jobs? Since I'm usually on the east coast, I can only apply online and such - is there a better way, now that I'm actually here? Plus, I'm only here for another two weeks...I realize this might be a silly question, but I'd appreciate all the help I can get.
