You will get shops in time. New folks have trouble getting shops at the end of the month as MSC contracts are up and schedulers desperately need to see shops completed correctly. The end of June and December are especially rough as they mark the end of quarterly and semi-annual contracts. A high percentage of folks either blow off or screw up their first shops, making schedulers wary of them until they have completed a few. You should have better luck getting assign shops now that we are into January and new shops are announced. Once you have established yourself a little, you'll get much more work assigned to you. Pretty much all of us start off slow.
