Sorry, couldn't resist... There are many ways, but it's hard to give you advice without knowing anything about you.

1) Networking -- do you know people who know people who are in a position to create a job or put you in a job?
2) Become marketable -- do this by developing marketable skills, developing experience (other jobs, life, etc), and having a solid resume. Develop your interviewing skills to sell yourself, the skills and such only get you into the interview.
3) Intern. Sometimes this is the best way to get your foot in the door.
4) Move where the work is. This is what I did out of school because I knew exactly what I was looking for... I was looking for a springboard job to set me up for even better jobs in a short period of time. I found my springboard job 1000 miles from home and went for it. Best decision I could have made.
5) Know when it is time to progress/move. Most people don't get into an 'awesome' job right away. They have to bounce around, network, and develop skills and resume glitter until they get there. One of the worst things you can do is stick around in one place so long that you plateau and it is no longer useful toward your career advancement.

Best of luck.

What a "good" job is is really a personal thing. It could be anywhere from working 100 hours a week for salary in a big wig position, to manning the cash register at Mickey D's.
