I have been having trouble getting a job in my field as a copywriter in advertisement.
As of now I am in retail (dead end) making 8.00 bucks an hour, my hours varies from week to week and so does my paycheck.
I don’t have real world experience which is holding me back and not many people are willing to give me a internship, because I am not a student anymore.
I graduated a year ago. I almost got a new job but they chose someone else. I really do not know what to do. I might have the opportunity to do some freelance work but it is not promised.
I know someone that I used to work with that is making 10 an hour at a call center and 40 hours a week. I don’t know if I should apply for that job. My biggest fear is that if I’m working at a job that has little or no relation to the field I want to work in that I will never be able to be a copywriter. I’m a writer in general, so I can write for the newspaper which doesn’t really interest me. Maybe a magazine but my writing is more on the creative side.
What should I do? Am I being to picky? What can I do to get into the field I want to work in, if I cannot do internships or other ways to actually gain experience in that field.
