I'm a 21 year old female searching for employment in Chicago. I have three years of college completed, but was forced to take a year off due to lack of funds. My last job was as an intern for a big local radio station for the urban market.
I've tried temp agencies (who only send me jobs for rural areas in Illinois which I am unable to take because I have no car), I've applied to fast-food restaurants (who tell me I'm over-qualified), and I apply to jobs on Craigslist daily.
I'm having no luck, and I'm growing frustrated despite my attempts to remain positive. Are there any resources that anybody can suggest? Thank you very much for your time!
