I also am interning with a non-profit agency that focuses on the low socioeconomic region of the town I live in, with multiple health issues ranging from prenatal health to HIV?AIDS. The jobs that I do qualify for are extremely low paying and cannot meet the bills that demand money constantly. I am interested in non-profit or public service agencies that are focusing on both domestic and international issues. All governmental or hospital agencies require some sort of connection to an employee that already works in the facility, which I do not have. I am young and a minority which should be an asset to any company, whereas it seems to be counting against me. I would love to gain employment in the Bay Area region, but do not mind travelling for work. Please help me!
