To prepare you to face those conditions, it helps if you listen to this advice.
Answering questions about work experience often required when applying for jobs, you perceive it's equal to the time you become an employee, though it's not always so. Interning at companies and agencies, or participating in particular projects are already regarded as work experience.

Don't forget to include those experiences in your curriculum vitae.
Although it's failed, don't need to despair. Please try again. You must've high motivations to working. Don't be like fishermen who depend their results on nature, so that their work is based on the conditions.
So, you're not looking for work, but the jobs are searching for you.
