Automotive Graduate Wants Into Dealership Service Dept?

I just graduated from a technical college and I have put out resumes and applications. I am new to this field but have always taken care of most jobs on my own cars and helped with friends and neighbors. I did graduate with honors but I am changing from the food service/ business management to automotive and I am over 40. I am moving next week to a place outside Charlotte, North Carolina west of Charlotte. Is there anyone out there with some good advice on how to land this job in a dealership or give me a lead? Thanks!
