Hello all,

Since I've had no luck with Coast Guard contractors and the local OneStop Career Center, I think it's time I followed other North Carolinians' example and seek employment in southeastern VA. (It also doesn't help that this is a small town area with the "good ol' boy" mentality.)

I graduated from college in 2008 with a BA in English with a concentration in creative writing and a minor in graphic design. I'm currently working in a retail environment where I've gained some inventory and record keeping experience. Office work appeals to me, but I'd love to put my creativity to use, maybe in advertising or Website design.

My experience/interests sound kind of broad, but are there any employment agencies that could be a fit for me? Temporary, temp for hire, or permanent, I'll take it. I'd rather work in the Chesapeake area, but if I need to go to VA Beach, I'll do it. (Norfolk and Portsmouth are too far for me, though.)

(And before anyone asks, I have no plans to teach. English degrees are not just for getting teaching jobs, and grad school is ridiculously expensive. But I am considering going back to school to get a certificate in Web design. )

Thanks in advance!
