One of the things a landlord looks at is your ability to pay. If you are unemployed an owner would look for you to have proof of significant savings and would most likely require a co-signor. I will be honest it will be difficult at best.
I suggest that you find a relative or friend with good credit who would be willing to act as a "Guarantor" on the lease in order for you to rent. A Guarantor acts as a co-signer and would be responsible for paying the monthly rent if you were unable to do so.
Hope this is helpful.
