Help! What can i do in my situation?

I graduated in June 2010 and to this day have failed to land a graduate job. Currently i work in MacDonald's and do some volunteer work on the side. Since June 2010 i have also done some charity work and unpaid work experience (but only remotely related to my field). I regularly get told i lack work experience, this may be true, but i can't get work experience related to my field. Believe me i've tried, that's why i've done all this other work experience! After a certain amount of time of job searching, i decided to expand my horizons and look into other careers, but there i hit a brick wall, i was told i had no experience in there fields at all, and realized i stood no chance as i didn't take a degree in it, i even got a recruitment agency question why i was changing careers and she even suggested i go back to uni for another 3 years and do a degree in that field (besides the fact i already have a degree). Now i'm left thinking, what on earth can i do? I can't get into my field because i lack experience and can't change careers as, yes, you've guessed it, i lack experience. What on earth can i do? Help?
