Volunteering has been mentioned, and it's certainly a good stepping stone. However, your chances of receiving proper employment afterward can still be rather slim, due to the fact that the few weeks'/months' experience you gain will still pale next to someone with several years' worth of experience. Of course, it all depends where you live - some places have it worse than others. There will be several thousand more people singing up for benefits here in the UK, now that certain High Street chains have made cuts.

I suppose what you need to do is keep an eye on the jobs market, apply for what you can, tailor your covering letter and CV carefully, and during your free time, consider volunteering, pursuing a new hobby (a relatively rewarding one), or consider going back to college/university. Don't feel bad about not finding work. Just don't allow yourself to get lazy.
