A degree helps of course.

For me it was hard. But there are so many factors.

Not to get personal, but what does your resume show and how do you distinguish yourself from the competition?

Was hard in my days but I got one eventually....
Go door knocking as this will show some potential employers you are keen, this has worked for me on previous occasions.
Do not give up as economic times are tough and jobs are bit scarce ATM....just keep trying.
