Most software testers get experience in writing software first. As a part of being a developer, you have to test your own code. A software tester gets to do more extensive testing like testing integration, performance and other more interesting things.

Software testing is also moving into an automated realm, and what they need there is people who can write testing scripts - not as complicated as writing code itself but its not point and click either.

Find a course on using these new tools - Mercury has the most comprehensive suite. Most jobs for software testers require some level of exposure to automated testing as its not a question for most companies about if they will automate, its a question of when.

If you?re a recent graduate (you mention you don?t have software experience) best advice is to start by taking specialized software testing courses. Most universities that teach computer science have some testing and QA programs ? if you also get a certificate or so even better.
While taking the courses find a company where you can volunteer as a tester. Many charities and non-profit organizations implement IT project on a shoe-string budget and will appreciate any help they can get and will provide you with work experience and references in the testing area.
Moreover, contacting them to offer your services is a useful experience for later when you?ll be asking for a paid job.
