This is difficult. I intern at a law firm, and I'm paid under the table, but I don't know if I can stretch this out for another year. I would certainly like to find an entry level gig, but I sent out countless resumes/cover letters without getting much in return.
And count yourself lucky if your parents don't charge you rent for living there. My parents are generous, but they charged me when I lived at home so that I would learn to budget better.
Look at Craigslist though. I had an employer that would post on there.
