How to start a statistical career for a graduate when everywhere is asking for years of experiences?

Hello everyone,

My name is Rachel, who just joined AnalyticBridge. I am wondering if anyone could give me some advice on starting my statistical career as a graduate when most of the jobs are asking for years of experiences.

I have graduated with a Master of Science in Medical Statistics with First Class Honours in 2008 at the University of Auckland in New Zealand, and have moved to Sacramento in June, 2008 (Green card holder). I have great interest in statistical analysis and programming. I would like to continue working in an area that involves statistics.

I have been filing applications for jobs online. Unfortunately, they all ask for years of experience that I don't have as a graduate. It seems like there is no way for a graduate to get a job. I am wondering whether the way I search for jobs or file applications is not appropriate or sufficient. If you don't mind giving me some suggestions, that will be of great help!

Thanks so much!
