Current L-visa expiring, contract over, how to extend visa

Hi all,
I have an Indian Passport, came here almost 2 years ago. Although, the contract was a permanent one, I was on an L-Permit, renewed once (so, I have had it for 2 terms). My contract was terminated a few months ago, n' my current visa status expires in mid-April.

I'd like to try n' apply for an extension, though I haven't found a job yet. What are my chances, or options, if I want to stay here, besides applying for a Schengen? I'm open to any suggestion… Student options, part-time jobs, or looking for an extension saying I am in the process of looking for a job.. (not sure how it works here) Also, who should I go meet, for the extension - the Kreisbüro, or the Migration Office? My last renewal was handled by the company, so I have not done it myself.. Hence, the questions!!

Thanks for your help, in advance!!
