I'm new in the profession. I graduated earlier this year from a 600 hour program in California. I reside in the suburbs of Chicago, and have been trying to get my license for the last 4 months now so I can begin my professional practice. It's been an ordeal working with the IDFPR (apparently there has been a switch over from written examination to computerized testing and the vendor that supplies the test is not providing clear details on its availability) and I am getting very frustrated waiting! I thought I would begin doing some sessions out of home so I can have some practice while I wait- build speed and exercise/retain my muscle memory. I just don't know how to go about it! I have advertised to friends but no responses yet. . . What else can I do to get word around? I don't want to circulate business cards as I would be practicing unlicensed. Any suggestions would really helpful!
