My educated guess is that it is an adverb, because "just" with the meaning of "only/merely/simply" is an adverb. So, the sentence:
Without the internet, I probably would have just looked for an out-of-state job.

Is the same as saying "Without the internet, I probably would have simply looked for an out-of-state job."
