Looks like a great resume but sometimes (especially in today's economy) people aren't looking to hire. Try marykay.com. You can be your own employer. A friend of mine works this way and she loves it. Give it a try!

Your resume and qualifications are most suitable for any type of office job. You should consider signing with a major employment headhunter/agency such as appleone.com or voit.com since they hold a virtual monopoly in the field of office jobs. Also check out www.indeed.com for university jobs. Good luck!
