How do I get a job in the political / social advocacy field?

I have a Political Science BA from a respected university, a high GPA, but have just graduated and have no experience other than an internship with a senate campaign office, but would like to break into the field by working for a politician, consultant, or social advocate. Any advice on how to do this in such a competitive field / horrible job market?
