Yeah, it's kind of like that old cliche - you have to have money to make money; in this case, you have to have a job to get a better job and so the cycle continues. But you also have to remember that in many ways the list of requirements in a job ad is just a "wish list" which describes the ideal candidate. Apply anyway, you've got nothing to lose. The important thing is to write a killer cover letter for your application and have a cv that looks professional, no typos etc. Get a professional to help you with it, even if it means you have to spend a little money on that. In the interview for my current job, my boss said that it was ultimately my cover letter that got me the job - and over 80 people applied for it. Be honest, and try to steer clear of cliches when describing yourself. Think outside the box - make them remember you. At some point you'll come across someone who recognizes your potential. Good luck!
