How can I get a career in finance?

I graduated from the Robert H. Smith School of Business from the University of Maryland with a degree in finance and international business. I began a career in sales(real estate) soon after graduation but I know this is not what I want as a career. Every time I look for a finance job, however, I never seem to have enough experience. I am a recent graduate and dont have finance experience besides my school experience. What can I do to change this or where else can I look???? Thanks!!
