Keywords to search for with entry level jobs

I have two and a half semesters left to go with my master's degree in IT:Software Engineering, and wanted to see what was out there if I can get anything while finishing it online.  However, when I look for jobs with searches such as "entry level", "in-training", "trainee", etc, I tend to get little results, and the few I do are usually scam companies that treat you like you're in the military and want to deploy you to another location after training, and I am not willing to relocate.

Other issues I have are when I find something labeled entry level, they have a laundry list of requirements that I would think any developer that has knowledge of all those tools, languages, and frameworks likely wouldn't be searching for an entry level position,

Java 8 is 20 years old?

No, but the requirement to be au fait with it is twenty years old.

Many companies list requirements that nobody can meet. Some do it our of ignorance. Even when the requirements are at least technically possible, it is rare to need to met them all to get a job. So apply anyway!

I read entry level jobs that say experience with SOAP and REST services, GIT, exposure to Javascript frameworks as well, and experience with Agile development.  

I haven't worked in this industry yet, but I find it very hard to believe that they're gonna hire someone who has never been a paid developer before that has all that experience.  Entry level means entering.

You should be using Git (not GIT) already. Many places teach Agile to undergraduates.
