Even if they have the words of "X years required" fling your application at them anyway, if your qualifications are good they might just get you in for an interview.No, it's an employer's market. Us employees are fucked in basic terms.
I lost count at several dozen applications, and I've seen at least one in ten (some days it's like one in six) job openings having the words 'X years of experience required' or 'X years of experience recommended'... and this is consistent on multiple job websites. Hell, one of the jobs I've just field an application in is one that I didn't get a call back the last time I've been looking for a job (and it was a housecleaning gig at the local hospital!).
Some areas that might get you a few interviews are farmwork and groundskeeping, its hard work and at times almost back breaking but it'll instill some good work ethics into you and open your eyes to work you might not know you're interested in.
