One thing that you can do is volunteer in a facility to gain some experience. There are also intern opportunities, but the problem with this is that you are gaining the experience without getting paid for it. I would also suggest getting yourself into a company by taking a position outside of coding, and then applying for the coding positions as they open up. Sometimes already being an employee can give you an edge of getting the internal positions when they are posted. One of the most important things is to network, go to chapter meetings. I have seen numerous people get jobs because they were recommended by someone in their chapter. And remember, to stay positive. It may be difficult but it is not impossible so keep trying.
