It's all about who you've worked with, what you've worked on and what gear you might have delt with.
It's mostly word of mouth recomendations.

I once saw a 2nd AC reel, however!
It was maybe 30 seconds of slates, one after another, of the different productions he worked on.
I hired him because I admired that kind of quirky initiative.
He's now a first AC.

Oh good, I don't have to put together a reel! Although it would be amusing...I'm thinking, all my focus-pulls with slow-motion instant replays with voiceovers. "Now this one was tricky because I had to use my left hand and my wrist was at a funny angle. And of course I had gotten 3 hours of sleep the night before." Maybe some behind-the-scenes footage of me loading; this would naturally be after the part where I put the changing bag over my head to check for light leaks and stumble around flailing my arms. Then, a dramatic sequence of slate-claps with "Eye of the Tiger" in the background for emphasis.
I mean, if that doesn't get me a job, then I don't know what will...
