It's now 2013 and you may choose to believe it or not, but there are companies out there who are waiting to fill in a host of entry level positions in their companies. Below are a short list of some companies that are hiring now and a list of online employment sites that are looking to hire in the New York/New York City area.
Don't forget to have a professional looking resume, cover letter, amplifications page, thank you note/letter and stamped envelope ready for your interview.
