Trying to get rolling

I’m working to get my BST. I already have my TWIC, MMD, Passport, and my medical certificate. I live in Jacksonville Florida I just want to know what companies on the East coast are looking for entry-level wipers and what is the best way to go at this entry level stuff? Should I go through the union or a company in order to try to get decent entry level pay? I’m interested in starting out as a wiper so I can qualify for a QMED raiting. Is there a demand for entry level positions on the East Coast? What have you found?
