You should try to do volunteer accounting work to get some experience. Even if you do not get paid, I think it is a value adding experience and will get your feet wet and get the necessary hands on experience.
There are a lot of places where you can volunteer - take the most simple task for example, sorting vendor invoices, data entry, etc. You want to be able to practice the accounting cycle steps that you learned in school. Remember, in accounting the key success factors are: practice, practice, practice.
