The Voluntarily Employed Technique

The word "free" always gets attention.

Even if you are able to locate temp or part-time paid work elsewhere, you may want to consider expanding your experience by volunteering for a local school, government agency, association, or community service organization. You can often work at the same professional level you are seeking as your long-term goal, so the experience will serve you well both on your resume and within the interview. Plus, not-for-profits often have good connections in the business community, so you may be able to develop further network contacts.
