How does one get a marketing job.?

I have experience in finance for 3 years. I have my undergraduate degree in business administration and I majored in marketing. I can not get a marketing job for the life of me.

How does one get a job in the marketing or advertisment industry when the companies want 10+ years of experience . I need help?
