Hello everyone i am an recent IT graduate. About 4 months ago i graduated my Diploma in Advanced Computer Science Level-7. For 4 months i have been trying to get into any job that would meet my studies that i have completed. Almost all the jobs i apply email me back that i do not have the relevant experience. Only thing i have to say is that during my 2 years of studies in New Zealand i have  tried doing part-time roles at various companies of New Zealand. Which has given me expereince on how to talk to people and communication skills.

Right now i need any kind of help that can help me get a job ASAP ,because i want to work for someone who can let me express all of the skills i have acquired during my studies. If anyone reading this post knows someplace i could knock-off as an intern or as entry level support in IT would be great help.

The main papers that i have covered during my studies have given me a good knowledge about server management, networking, security , back-up, disater-management, hardware support. Here is a link to the program that i have completed http://www.nzse.ac.nz/our-programmes/school-of-information-and-communication-technology/diploma-in-advanced-computer-science-level-7/.

Anyknid of tips on my jobsearch startergy would be a great help and please feel free to contact me on my details as below.

Have you looked for things like ISP Helpdesk, or similar support desk / callcentre semi-technical roles? You are unlikely to jump in to any server/network/security administration type role with a diploma and zero experience, in my opinion. You need to start entry-level.

Yes all my previous approachs have been on entry level roles at firms like Fujitsu, IINET, Vodafone, Spark and many more but the replies have not been good.
What type of ISP providers do you think would be best to try.

I know that it is not realistic for me to apply for administrative jobs.

Hang in there. I applied for over 100 jobs before I got my first job after graduation, and I'm a born and bred kiwi with NZ qualifications. You didn't say where in the job hunt things are going amiss so here are some general things that helped me/others

*Get some questions relevant to the role ready, call HR and have a discussion to them about your questions, and only then send in your CV. That way HR will be waiting for your CV and it won't be just another random CV.

*Go to the employment agencies in town, they may already have a contact or a relationship with the firm that has a role available.

*Get professional help with your CV and interviewing skills. being that you are a recent graduate, your experience will be light, so sell yourself, your aptitude, your can do attitude, work ethic, your ability to learn, follow instructions and work in a team and have examples to back these up. Self praise is not considered highly in NZ,, so make sure you quote other people describing you rather than your personal opinion of yourself. This carries much more weight.

*Do some volunteer work/work for free in your field to get some experience and a reference from within your industry.

*Consider self employment

Best of luck. It might not be easy now, but if you keep at it you will get what you believe you can do.

Thanks for the reply your help is appreciated and I will work on the points provided by you.
Is it possible for someone to have a look at my CV and tell me if there is something going wrong in the way I am expressing it because most rejections are after I email my CV or apply on-line.
Thanks

And one more thing can anyone tell me how to attach files when I am sending a message to someone using this website's messenger.

Happy to help with CV stuff also.  Just flick me a PM. :)

Slingshot is a great place to start.  The ability to move up quickly (especially if qualified) is quite high.  Good training and experience too.
