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,

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'm not sure if I approve of this interruption. But this tiny ad checks out:
