My bubby passed away a few years ago, otherwise I would be asking my own bubby. Thank you in advance for offering your services.
There are no jobs in America. I would be willing to take one in Europe, but that's a long shot. I am a writer. I have a $100,000 education. I graduated at the top of my class from one of the best art schools in the country. I drive a taxi.
I'm getting desperate. What can I do to get a job, please? Do you know anyone who can put me to work? Real work? The kind that involves a desk and my brain, please? Please?!
I am sorry that you lost your Bubby, but that is life and now you must take yourself in hand.
I'm sorry but I really don't have access to a writer's job. Have you gone to what is known as a "head hunter"? They are people who use your resume and then contact firms who are looking at what you have. There may be a "finder's fee", but it would be worth it.
As for going overseas for a job, I would not recommend it at this time. I feel EU is very anti-semitic (since you say bubby, I assume that you are Jewish). If you want to go overseas, why not try Israel? Contact the Daily Forwards - maybe some help. But I think applying to some magazines, journals here in the city, is better.
How about Philadelphia or Chicago? Or best, try the agency. Firms are always looking and these agencies have the answers.
