I'm a temp/consultant at a Fortune 100 company. My project is ending soon and I to find another one. How do I do so?

I've been working at a large company since February. I was brought on to help do document review and data entry. But due to my barely above beginner level skills in Excel, they moved me to more of an analyst role. Right now, I review data and create spreadsheets to summarize and make the data more accessible.
My current supervisor told me I need to go and network with other managers within the company so I can get something permanent. There are no permanent roles still available on my current team.
So how do I go about talking to people I don't know well in hopes that they will hire me? Ask them straight out? See if their division has a job posted and do a blind application?
I'm not good at job hunting so I hope you can help me.
