Well I think resumes help you because you basically need basic experience to get a job. While you're looking for a job you should be volunteering since it counts as experience. I know its not fun but some people have it harder than others.
Also you can always look at construction work if you're big enough. I know my friend didn't really have work experience after he graduated, worked a little at target but got a construction job.
Don't forget to call in if you don't hear from them as a follow up.
