Recent University Graduate seeking entry level oppurtunity -- Willing to relocate anywhere

My name is Aaron and I recently graduated from the University of Texas at Dallas with a B.S. in software engineering. I have been searching for an entry level developer/programmer position since I graduated in May 2011. I have had two interviews with large companies and spoken with about a dozen recruiters, but still have not had any success. I made the mistake of not attempting to find an internship while I was still in school. I was very focused on receiving the degree and finding a job at the time was merely an afterthought. Many employers give me a bewildered look when they discover that I have no experience. I am fed up dealing with recruiters, as I feel that they are middlemen attempting to leach wages from myself or my potential employer. I have an in depth knowledge of Java SE and OO design principles and am spending a considerable amount of time and effort to learn Java EE, as I now know that virtually no employer is seeking someone that only knows Java SE. I really do not expect anything to come from this post, but to be frank, I am getting desperate. I am highly motivated, and very resourceful. Right now I scrape by doing anything I can to earn a dollar. I am willing to relocate virtually anywhere in the world and have virtually no expectations regarding salary. I may be contacted at
