I recently graduated (this year) with a B.A. in psychology from UC Riverside and would like to escape my current retail job in favor of something in the field before I apply to grad school.

I have been with my current job here in southern Riverside county for almost four years, now. I earn a few dollars above minimum wage (~$12/hour), work 40 hours a week, have a HMO health insurance plan, six paid holidays every year, vacation time, personal time and sick time as well as a 401K program.
However, I'd really like to find a (preferably local) job that will give me some experience in the field and look good on a resume (and on a grad school application). I've already looked at three local county health department websites and they all require masters degrees and previous experience.
I'd like to find something that has benefits close to what I have at my current job, though the main criteria is that it needs to pay as well or better than the job I have now because I do have bills (car payments, insurance, cell phone, etc.) to pay. I really don't know where to start looking, apart from maybe inquiring at some of the local hospitals.
Any suggestions or advice would be much appreciated!
