Ah, the experience Catch-22
Yes, the experience requirement is and always has been vexing and perplexing.  It was no different back in the 90s for me.  Your point about networking with actual people is true - the old "It's not what you know, it's who you know" adage still applies in many cases, especially in the early stages of one's career where you actually don't really know yet!  (Read:  Have few experiences in the field.)  You MUST be able to sell yourself.
