Wiki Help Need Coding experience

Best answers
Hello everyone: Does anyone have any ideas on how I can begin getting coding experience? I am newly graduated, my CPC exam will be at the end of this month. I have been looking for work as a coder, but everywhere I look they want many years experience. Where can I get experience? Any ideas who usually hires new coders to begin to obtain that experience that I need?. Thank you for any help or ideas.
