I am a recent non-traditional graduate living in Tennessee. I've been having problems trying to land a job due to my lack of experience in my field. I worked full-time, and went to school part-time in order to pay bills and survive. Every time I applied for an internship they turned me down because they couldn't work with my school or work schedule. I didn't work full-time toward the last years of school. Does anyone have any advice about what I can do to finally get into my chosen career path?
A few places have offered me unpaid internships recently, but just out of school and things not looking good with the economy and the fact its an employers job market has left me out in the cold. Also, the place I'm currently working might be looking to layoff some people in the next month or so.
