I just want to encourage you to keep job hunting, even if you get the coffee shop job. Your English degree CAN open doors for you.
I have an English degree, and getting a job as an administrative assistant at a university was the best thing for my career. People look down on administrative assistant work, because it doesn't necessary need a degree, but it is a great entry-level job and can pay really well, plus you learn all about the field you are working in. Working at a university is awesome for English majors. You may be able to pick up some college-level teaching experience. I taught a study skills class without a masters degree. You have access to a world-class library, and there are promotional opportunities.
