a degree, while a requirement, doesn't give you much pull in an interview. you need to build a CV. land whatever job you can and build your list of achievements. when you are interviewing for jobs, all a company is looking for is your value. a list of things your duties at a job isn't an expression of your value, you need accomplishments.
so get whatever job you can (you're young, just get a job), then OWN it. get goal oriented and get **** done. exceed targets, increase efficiency, improve profitability, document what you did and why it worked, then use that as ammunition when you're interviewing for jobs that you may feel under qualified for.
nobody cares that you managed 20 people, but they do care that you cut ops costs by 5% while lifting quarterly profits 7.5%
I know that this isn't necessarily specific advice, but if you're going to get ahead, you need a plan. a specific type of job isn't necessary to begin executing your plan, increasing your value is the first step.
Hope that helps
