10. Complete an internship
If all else fails, signing up for an unpaid internship is an almost guaranteed method of landing a job. As long as you complete the internship to the best of your ability and impress your supervisor, you should be offered a job at the end or at least a glowing recommendation.
Once you land your dream job, you can start improving your career prospects almost immediately. Volunteer for any projects that you are capable of contributing to in order to gain as much experience as you can.
Ask one of your colleagues to tutor you on the different aspects of your job to help you get comfortable in your new role as soon as possible.
