Networking is best, but what is second best?

I found out recently that the firm I have worked for the past eight years (since graduating college) is going to be closing in about a month. (Eek!) I have enough money saved for awhile, DH has an excellent job, we have no kids who need to eat. We're not worried yet.
I have a strong résumé, and have a few connections to network in different areas, but what ELSE can I do, besides searching Craig's List? If I submit my résumé through a company's website in reply to specific job postings, will it just end up in a pile?
