Is it easy to get a job if you have a diploma but no experience?

I am looking to get a diploma in accounting and become a finance manager but I do not have any experience, would it be easy to get a job having a diploma but no experience? Or is experience more important then a diploma? Also can you skip certificate 3 and 4 and go straight to diploma?

If you have a degree, then you've done numerous group projects, presentations, and papers. Play these up as your experiences in teamwork, communication, and time management.

Kinda like a chicken and egg thing. You can't get your first job without a diploma. Experience is more important but how do get experience without a diploma first to get your first experience.
