What kind of jobs should I look for?

Hi everyone. Im 23, female, and from portugal. I finished a Bacherls in Science last year and am now working as a trainee in Frankfurt.  However, starting in September, I won´t work anymore. I´m looking for a job for maybe a year or a bit more, so I can save a bit of money and improve my German, before I go on to a Masters degree.

My level of German is basic - I took 2 years of classes, studied a lot by myself, but I only speak english in my apprenticeship because there are other foreigners here. I feel that if I study I could passa an exam for B1 - which I intend on doing after Summer.

My level of English is proficient - I have the CPE Cambridge Certificate.

My job experience is next to none. I have worked during Summer in Summer Camps with small children, and worked for a year as an English tutor, and also a few times I have been a private English tutor. But that´s it.

I was wondering how realistic it is that I could find a job where my lack of fluency in German isn´t too much of a barrier. I´m willing to work as a waiter, nanny, anything like that, but I also don´t know where I should begin to apply.   Any help would be much appreciated!

Unskilled jobs are always the most difficult to find - and the worst paid.
