It really is true that most jobs are found through personal connections.

amen! Every job interview I got so far was because of a personal connection's recommendation. It's not only what you know, it's who you know too. One thing that helped me to make connections was joining a local dev meetup.

Joining a meetup is a fantastic idea! I got 2 job interviews by giving talks. I blatantly mentioned that I had just graduated and was looking for a job and 2 people in the audience saw me and decided to make the connection.
