How can I have two to four years work experience?
I'm looking at job applications for a nice sales/marketing job. However, all of them require two to four years sales experience. Obviously I don't have that since I"m a recent graduate. How is it possible to get into an entry level job when it requires that you have already done it for at least two years?
