First, and most importantly, keep an open mind. There are several entry-level job opportunities available, some at great companies that would offer you a great opportunity to get your foot in the door. While it is ideal to get a position in your job field, this isn't always the case for everyone so it's important that you're open to other similar positions that could provide a good start to your career. I think it's best for future employers to see that you've held some sort of job rather than nothing.
I would also recommend utilizing the career center at your college or university. Several employers utilize school job boards to advertise entry-level roles for students who have already graduated. I think this is often a forgotten resource after you graduate but take advantage of it.
Lastly, don't get discouraged. Job searching takes time and can sometimes take a job seeker submitting several applications before getting an interview. Don't be afraid to connect with recruiters on LinkedIn or use your personal and professional network to help jump start your job search.
