Sital wrote a great post. I think the overarching reason why people fail in their job search attempts is the simplest: they don't try and they don't put in the work necessary.

As I recently overheard, job searching should BE your fulltime job if you're motivated enough to find one.

First you have to know where the jobs are before you mount a strategy to go after them. Most executive job seekers look to executive recruiters and job boards for open positions. The problem with this is recruiters get 15% of all executive searches and fill half of them, and only 1% of anybody ever gets a job from a job board.
