How do you get experience? You get a job!

This catch-22 is making me puke :(

Every entry-level lab job I've applied to has mentioned it's entry level (meaning, anyone with basic college credit OR lab credits should be fine). But then when I inquire as to why my resume has been passed up, it's always "We're looking for experience in the industrial sector". So, I am over-qualified in the technical sense (as I have a TWO full BA with accompanying lab credits) but I don't have any experience because I just graduated.

Awesome! I'm overqualified AND under qualified at the same time!

WEEEEEEE!!!! :(

someone hire me plz. :cry:
