College graduate needs to know how to find a fitting job?

I graduated a year ago with a degree in biology (b.s.). I have been trying to find a job ever since. I live in cleveland, oh and the problem I keep running into is that every job is a sales job. I AM NOT A SALESPERSON!!! I am very smart and a job that does not utilize this will be short lived. I need something that allows me to make decisions and does not involve selling. Going back to school is not an option as I need money and WILL NOT move home to live with my parents. So unless it is something that allows me to go to school part time while working full time, it is not an option. I am very open minded, all I really need is decent pay, bennefits, and the ability to think for myself so I dont get bored and quit. I am currently working part time in retail, with little room for advancement as the only real position to move into is store management which is a very competitive sales position. My sales numbers are not good at all. I also work part time teaching at risk 6th graders, but i am not a licensed teacher. I do enjoy the job, but the long hours of a teacher and low pay are most likely not for me. biology is just a degree, a job with biology is not important or really even anything worth considering. Sales jobs are the only real jobs I find available.
