    Well, you can send out your applications to area doc offices and state you're looking for an entry level position: filing, answering phones, etc. Do you have any secretarial or reception experience...that helps. Some offices will train. Good luck.

    If you are thinking of going the secretarial route in a derm. office until you start school you should consider going to a temp. agency too.

    All I can say is... good luck! If the area you live in is as job-starved as it is here, you'd be lucky getting a job at all - much less one without any relevant skills.

    Sorry to be a bummer, hope it works out for you - it never hurts to apply!
