How do I schedule interviews for a new job while I'm employed full-time?

, I've started looking for a new job. Even though I've been working since I was 14, this is only the second time I've gone through this process of searching and interviewing, and have never done it while employed full-time. To complicate things more, I've just returned from vacation and have taken a couple of days off for Christmas - I have no vacation or personal time left for the year, any time off will be unpaid. I'm not concerned about losing money or hours of work, just the appearance of taking so much time off recently. I also work in the suburbs but am applying for jobs in Chicago (closer to home), so interviewing on a lunch break isn't really an option. Do I really just need to bite the bullet and take more time off? How do I do it without tipping off my employer? Can I ask prospective employers to be flexible in their schedules to accomodate my 8 to 4.30 work hours?
