Got laid off Dec 5th. Things have been alright - called my contacts I knew and asked if they were hiring. No. Sent out resumés to places in the area that were hiring. Haven't heard anything back. Now onto looking for any job I could perhaps be qualified for: Best Buy, grocery stores, department stores, etc. Nothing. There really isn't that much work out there for me to do. It's been almost a month and a half and work is scarce. Any advise to keep me afloat? I do live with my girlfriend and while she does make enough for both of us to live on the bare necessities, I'd like to contribute to our lifestyle and not become a burden. I have my BFA in Visual Communications.
