I am relocating to Lexington,SC at the end of July 2015. My partner has not had any issues lining up interviews once we are up there. I on the other hand have applied to a few places and haven't had any bites. I am looking to stay in the same field of work as a construction assistant/office assistant. I very much enjoy the construction business.

I have been in an office setting for 4 years, I have done it all from assistant the sales team for a global corporation to my current position as an assistant to project managers and superintendents, and everything in between (I can go into more detail about my work experience upon request). At this point anything will be a great start, even if it is part-time, temporary.

Any leads on where to call or apply to would be beyond helpful at this point.

Thank you all very much in advance!!!

Apply for any and all jobs containing the words administrative assistant, office assistant, construction assistant, etc. Indeed.com is your friend for this. Also check out our local newspaper, The State, as they usually have job postings daily. Since it doesn't sound like y'all are from here you may consider using a headhunter/recruiter as they probably have a better pulse about who is hiring in the local area. Check out our local news websites (WACH FOX, WLTX, WIS) as they usually announce when there are job fairs so you can check out those if you like and start networking. Unfortunately the job search and the process behind it is long and painful pretty much anywhere in the US and the Midlands is no different. Best of luck.
