Actaully it's can be difficult, especially if the agency does not have technical knowledge either. What you may need to do is find an agency that has enough technical experience to be able to test you. If you can satisfactory pass their tests, then you should be able to at least get in their files.

If you want the agency to represent you, they need to know what you can do. Without knowing that, they'd be taking a risk in proposing that their clients contract with you.

So basically, prove to them that you have the knowledge and ability even though you might not have the experience.

Good luck.

Keep searching hte papers etc for a job that is not advertised through an agency - not everyone believes in agencies as so many of them have no technical knowledge.

That way you'll get yoru experience.

I know its hard at first, but perservere and apply to so many places. Be prepared to take soemthing a little different to start with - once in companies will often see your potential and let you mov einto other areas. That has worked for me several times.
