Help me become a temp

I'd like to leave my relatively stable (but likely dead-end) job for temp work, with the hope of landing in a position with more potential to be a career--or, at least, the potential for occasional promotions.

To live or die in Chi-town

Asking for a friend: How might she go about finding gainful employment in Chicago? She's two years out of college, graphics design major, working for a printer in middle America, and wants the bright lights, big city. Marketing would be the dream job for her. Any advice? Recruiting agencies? Pounding the pavement? The Internet hasn't worked so well for her.
