Q: How DO You Search for an Entry Level Position?

I'm trying to help my son find an entry-level position in computational
biology in the USA.  He has a new degree in biomedical science, a
background in C++ programming, and a senior project that computed
primer-template bonding temperatures using a nearest-neighbor algorithm.
He's deferring grad school until he knows what specialized field he
wants to work in.  He's been e-mailing resumes to the human resources
offices of companies on the web, but I have the impression that he's
getting lost in the hundreds of resumes they must get that way.  I'm
sure there's a lot of research labs that could use his skills, but most
of them don't post their openings on the web.  Is there a better way to
do this?
