The job market: Nepotism in action

I'm graduating soon and suddenly, what I want to do is not acceptable. I can't accept part time jobs, because now that I'm in the "big leagues," as my father puts it, I can accept nothing less than a full time, 9-5 job. Clearly, its been a while since he's been in the job market.
Becoming a wedding planner isn't as easy as landing a full time assistant job until you gain enough experience and clientele that you can start your own business. Though I'm no expert, I'm pretty sure that the wedding planning industry is entirely based on nepotism. There's this guy who has a friend who has a brother who can make a call...If you are even able to get a job, you have to bust your butt and learn everything you can before you can get a chance to be successful. I am perfectly happy doing work for free until I get enough experience to get a job...too bad life requires you to have money...
