Tips for getting receptionist jobs?

I am looking for a job and I would really like to find one by the end of the month. I have 3 years of college and customer service experience. My resume is fine but not horribly impressive. I would really like to be a receptionist/secretary at a nice office with a dress code and regular bank hours. Benefits would also be nice. Any suggestions on ways to catch the eye of potential employers, good businesses to apply at, or ways to get good jobs? Thanks.
