Now what? School Promised Internship But Didn't Deliver

Dear Experts, I took a program in medical coding. I learned that this is a field that I would enjoy and would suit my core strengths. However, most jobs require at least two years experience. I was originally told that I would get an internship after completing the program, but was later told that the school does not offer internships in my field. After completing the program and looking for any job related to medical records, billing, or coding without any success, I took and passed the certification exam. Yet, I am still having trouble breaking into this field. The local chapter of my professional association hasn't helped me, although I'm not giving up on them yet! Are there any blogs, tools or resources that help with specific career job search tactics and how would I go about finding them? Without the internship experience I was told I would get in the program, I am finding it really tough to break into the field. Our Twitter Advice Project (T.A.P.) is no longer an active campaign.
