How do I get an entry level job in public relations?

Hello. I graduated December 2005 with a BS in Communications, concentrating in broadcast journalism. I've spent the time since then trying to get into law school, and while I succeed, I hated it and didn't want the debt. So I was trying to see if I could get a job in public relations. I have ample public speaking and news writing classes from my degree, but no PR-specific internships which is the big source of entry-level jobs. How would I go about procuring one with my credentials? I don't have a portfolio per se, but some clips from my news writing classes. Any ideas? If you desire more details, just ask. Thanks!

Take another class or two from some place like Specs Howard - that will get you in with the professors and will help you get placed with an internship - you can just do some post-grad work to get the connections.
