Although it's can be tough to find an entry-level position, there are still some things you can do to make a great impression on potential employers. Beef up your resume by doing some volunteer work or taking on an internship (even one that doesn't pay). It's best if you can get some experience in a field related to your desired career, but any experience is better than no experience. In your resume, make it clear how you've honed valuable professional skills in these nontraditional jobs.
You can also start working toward meeting the skill requirements for the job you want. The internet offers endless opportunities to learn new things, oftentimes for free. For example, you can learn a new coding language or pursue an certificate for administrative work. Create a top-notch application package for the job you want. Use your cover letter to describe your motivation and ability to learn on the job.
