Junior job hunting in the Big Apple

I’ve been trying to find a job as a Jr. Art Director or Jr. Designer, but things don’t seem to move very much and most agencies are not hiring right now. I’m from Mexico City and I need to get a job within the next 3 months, otherwise I get kicked out of the country. My question is: is there any agency or any place in NYC that you think might be hiring Jr. people? or Where do you recommend that I look for something?

There is a new place that’s ALL juniors in London–not that it’s helping you in New York, but nice to think it would catch on. Check out
