Entry Level Instrumentation Position

I’m new to this forum, and is excited that i found this website. I have a question for the seasoned Instrumentation Technician’s. What advice would you give on how to obtain an Entry level position? 36 year old woman here who’s 3 months from graduating with a diploma in Instrumentation.

I’m thinking about re enrolling , but for Automation to strengthen my electronic side. Every application I have sent my resume to require that I have at least 3-5 years of experience first plus an Associate’s Degree. Your advice would be greatly appreciated.
