Job Hunting

I plan on graduating May 2010 with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Creative/Professional Writing.  My goal, first of all, is to get a good job at a publishing house.  From there, I hope to end up as  a Literary Agent.

Currently, I’m looking for jobs in the Twin Cities.  I haven’t applied for any, but I’ve been trying to find someone to answer my questions I have about the publishing industry.  So far, no one has responded.  I contacted Beaver’s Pond Press Spring of my junior year at college.  They told me they would send information about their establishment and told me to look them up upon graduation.  I haven’t recieved any information yet.

The following is a list of the publishing houses I am currently interested in:
