Getting a job in the IT field without any experience

How do you get a job in the IT field without any experience?
In today's job market, targeted, hands-on experience has become a necessity. Even with an extensive, focused educational background, some candidates are having difficulty landing IT jobs without it. As a job seeker, this should be your number one priority. Consider applying your technical skills to volunteer projects with local non-profit organizations, schools or churches. You can also acquire experience through internships. Your goal should be to develop a history of professional successes that you can list on a resume and apply to future employment opportunities.
