    It's a town of 13,000 people. With all due respect, most likely an entry-level job. Chance to get some clips, experience, etc. Things that are valuable for many without insider connections who don't walk into the New York Times the day after graduation.

    Yes, you may need to work a second job, depending on your needs. Nothing shameful about that. Have several friends doing it, including a single mom. It is what it is.
