Start doing jobs in your spare time, build up your "portfolio", and then you can have more experience to put on your resume.
 
Any delusions though about this not taking a couple years should be expelled from your brain, having a non-programming degree and trying to break into a saturated job market with people who have been programming professionally is especially difficult. This isn't the .COM era anymore where we had a hard time finding talent, people are working for peanuts just to have a job near code.
 
---
To add to that, realize that there are thousands of programmers coming out of school right now with a degree in programming (Computer Science or Software Engineering) that can't get a job. These are highly qualified individuals who lack experience, its an employer market right now, meaning the favor is on the employer to get exactly what they want. The job market is still recovering and we employers can be very picky.
 
On top of that, if you are applying for a programming job and you mis-represent yourself on your resume to get your foot in the door (talking up your skills, experience, etc) this is usually where the interview immediately ends. It doesn't take long for a good recruiter to figure out how much bullsh*t you put on your resume.
