I-130 approved in 2007 for unmarried child over 21. Needs card expedited or Alternative means to get a job without sponsorship

Asked over 1 year ago - Houston, TX

MyI-130 has been approved since 2007. I have been in the US attending school since 2002. I have 2 undergraduate degrees (honors), a logistics certificate and an MBA. I have been getting many jobs but they are unwilling to sponsor because the economy was always bad when I graduated. Hence, I'm pursuing yet another degree in order to maintain legal standing. Is there a way to expedite my card process? I cannot wait another year b4 my date becomes available. My entire family has moved here and are citizens and the wait has been putting serious financial pressure on me since I have to stay here legally.

Additional information

Clarification: "Job offers" but unable to secure a job because of my need for sponsorship
