Not true really. I freelanced for a company in Los Angeles, and all I had to do was submit a writing sample. They even offered me a full-time job at one point, but I turned it down because the entire reason I freelance is I want to set my own hours.

Well, you got lucky.

15 years of consulting and I never seen a recruiter approaching anyone or job ad looking for anyone with zero experience.

Call center may be your best option if you're not willing to go blue collar. Other options include sales, real estate agent, stock broker (at a call center most likely), or loan officer.
