Seeking Full Time Strength Coach Position

I am seeking a full time position as a Strength and Conditioning Coach and am having no luck and would like some advice.  I am currently CSCS certified (since 2004) and RSCC Certified since 2012.  I own and operate a Personal Training studio in Bend, OR and work on a contract basis with all the local high schools.  Due to budget constraints and limited vision of what a full time strength coach could mean to a high school athletic program I am hired by some head coaches who see the value, but there is no opportunity to get a full time position.  We have a community college in town and Oregon State is launching OSU Cascades, however neither have an athletic program to speak of at this time, so opportunities for internships and experience at that level are limited as well.  I am finding most positions I apply for require at least some type of college experience which I can't seem to get.  I have applied for an assistantship through NSCA and was told I have too much experience and certifications so it was not applicable to me.  So I am feeling stuck between a rock and a hard place.  Any advice or anyone willing to give me a shot I would love to hear from you.  I have attached my resume as well.  Thanks for your help.
