Job Search

Hello, I am a Kent State University Graduate from the school of Architecture and Environmental Design with a bachelors in Interior Design. I am seeking a Career in my field. I need to know what companies are hiring and where to look to apply. I have my resume, references and portfolio and ample work experience. Please advise if you know of any job openings anywhere, I am willing to relocate. Thank you for your time and have a blessed day.

I am not in a position to provide specific openings, but can certainly provide some insight on the job search.

The answer, in a nutshell, is:
Thru your research
And then thru your contacts 
--Richard Bolles

The above listed quote sums up the most effective method of searching for a position.  First, list potential employers that could hire you -- firms in your region, outside your region, etc.  Next, extend to your network (FB, LinkedIN, etc.) to find someone that knows someone in one your firms that is hiring.  

Everyone you know (family, friends, etc.) should know you are seeking a career position.  

Send your materials, knock on their doors, follow-up.

Your job is to secure a career position - full-time.  You should be spending 8-10 hours a day on your search.
