Up until this past week I was having the exact same issue as you are. I was able to find my job through going to my local chapter meetings and letting people know that I was looking for a job and that I didn't have any real on-the-job coding experience. One of the members found out her office had an opening and she remembered I was looking so she called me.
Until you have experience it seems like the only way to get a job is through networking. I've also been told that if you check out larger organizations who hire coders, they're more likely to take the risk of hiring someone without experience and training them. Or you could always try Project Xtern, but those are generally unpaid positions. I hope this is helpful, though it's probably nothing you haven't heard before. Good luck!
