Jobs for students who are also actors

Hi Jobcasers,

I know I am in the same boat as a lot of people working in the NYC area. I am currently a student and graduating soon which means having to find work so i can move into an apartment. I am looking for jobs that will be flexible with me pursuing my dreams. I am also struggling to figure which jobs i should be looking for. Is there anyone who may be able to offer a lead or advice on this issue?

Thank you very much,
Seth Kutun

I don't know what to do.

I'm having a difficult time finding a first job. I've spent months applying and searching for many, many jobs. I have not heard back at all from most employers, a few have reviewed but rejected my application, and for the couple of employers that interviewed me decided to pursue other candidates. I don't know what to do.

Dont give up. The right job is out there.

The hardest part of my job search is..

I am a new employee. I have not had a job at all, and this has become a struggle for employers, but I am just as hardworking and responsible as most other Canidites, and although I don't have much experience, I am very quick at learning the ropes
