How can you get in a job when you don't have the experience yet?

I am studying to be a physical therapist assistant. I want to get into the environment but the thing is that i dont have any experience. So my question is how can i get a job in a clinic or hospital, but i understand i wont be doing what im studying because im not certified yet but i would like to start somewhere.

I would apply as a physical therapy technician or does not require any formal training. Many clinics would be willing to hire you if they knew you'd become a PTA and would probably work in their clinic after that.

you can try getting into an OJT On the Job Training program that usually utilizes unskilled personnel to teach them basic job requirements and of course be under a trial basis so that when you are actually hired you have the experience needed to do your job..
