Default Employment in the Architectural/Interior Design Field

I've recently moved from Atlanta,GA to Columbia,SC. I'm having trouble finding headhunters and employment in the Architectural/Interior Design field. I have a Bachelor's in Interior Design, with extensive experience in AutoCAD, residential cabinet design, and the related fields. Anyone have any suggestions I can start from?

Cheri16,
As you are very aware of, your fields are in occupations that have really taken a beating in with this recession. People aren't buying homes, not building homes or office buildings, and alot of people are out of work, so if you ONLy look for jobs in your specific field, you won't have gret luck.
Open your avenues and do something else.
With your degree, you could get a job in teaching, you could work for the federal government in any position, you just need a degree in anything, you could go to furniture stores, (in particular Ethan Allen) and see if you can work for them.
You will get something soon if you tell everyone you know and everyone you run into that you are a designer and need work.
What about home staging? Get business cards made up and drop them off at Realty offices.
Be willing to drive up to an hour to get some work.
I wish you well, it's hard for everyone right now, but the job market will pick up by the summer.
