How's your resume? Is it free of errors and douchiness? Pay somebody to spend half an hour going over it for you. Also: cover letters. Make sure you specifically address the employer's needs (as detailed in the job posting). A cover letter isn't about you and your fancy degrees--it's about you pitching a solution to all the employer's problems. Be specific and brief. The position calls for high-energy multitasking and dealing with the public? Your job waiting tables has given you EXCELLENT experience with this. They need somebody versed in Excel? You (will) have taken online tutorials to be the greatest Excel master of all time.
This strategy won't get you a job, but it will sure as hell get you an interview. Then you're on your own.
