Marketing Jobs Don't Exist? What's Going On?

Are there any marketing jobs in san diego or in california in general? I am a recent graduate and barely can find any. I use craigslist, careerbuilder/,, yahoo hot jobs, directly go to corporate web sites, but no luck. It seems like EVERY marketing job is 99% of the time for a "manager", "director", "senior", or some other high position, are there ANY entry-level marketing jobs? I know they are things like marketing analyst, marketing assistant, assistant brand manager, marketing associate/coordinator, etc., but they are barely any. I am willing to go to other states but it seems like it's the same thing over and over, garbage entry level jobs flooding job sites that are door-to-door labelled as "marketing", or manager jobs that I'm obviously not qualified for, what am I supposed to do? Is it the economy? This major? Or something else? *MBA: I haven't found any schools in California that I can enroll in an MBA because they all require you work first, average age of entrance is normally 27-28 with 4-6 years of work experience. Unless I do an online degree which I wouldnt want to do. *Why are there more managerial positions than entry level? What other functions in a business should I look after? I also try product development, PR, communications, etc. *How can I work for online marketing firms that require things like Search engine marketing experience when I didnt learn that stuff in school? Should I get a certificate in it? Learn it somewhere?
