Individual players can also perform a search for a party that suits their needs and objectives.
1. From the main menu, select Party and then Search.
2. Review the recruitment details and conditions of parties currently recruiting members and select the one you wish to join.
I havent actually tried this but have read in lots of places that there is no way to search for party members with specific skills etc. Unless i am misunderstanding the text here (provided copied from The Lodestone). THis appears to provide a reasonable tool to list yourself as looking for a party - and then to look through those currently listing to find additional party members.
Sorry - I am nowhere near my computer to try this out but has anyone else had joy with it?
