I have looked at numerous job applications and they always require some type of job expereince, but you also need a job to get the expereince. What is a person to do?  Should you try and convince the company to hire you with the lack of experience?  Any suggestions?

NO, you should not try to convince them to hire you without experience. You should try to convince them you're good enough without that experience and you're willing to learn a lot in a short period of time.
But why do you say you haven't got experience? How old are you? Even if you have just finished college, you still have some relevant experience, you're just not aware of it. Here are some good suggestions:

One of the ways to go about this is to make sure that the experience you have is really working for you and is well explained in your resume. Sometimes you have to draw the links for the recruiter - to explain why doing x makes you suitable for y.

Also think about other ways that you can get experience - through things like charity and volunteer work.  Often volunteer agencies will let you learn new stuff and give you a testimonial if you do a good job - and this can be really helpful.  Think also how your hobbies might come into play - can you help organise the club, arrange an event and stuff like that which show your organisation and leadership skills

I think Volunteer work and internship would cover it.

I  think if the person does not have a good job experience then the recruiter never recruits him unless he finds something positive in him or capability of doing that job.

You should do internship before applying for a job as through internship you can learn more about your field & it will give you some experience also & i think after doing internship you can get a job.
