Advice: Graduating college without a job lined up

Hi everyone,

I am currently attending a university that is not heavily recruited by accounting firms. The only firms that recruit at my school are in-state. I would like to move to a different region of the U.S. after graduating next fall (2017, with 150 credits). I would be moving graduated from college and without a job. I am wondering how difficult finding a job, at a mid-size regional firm, would be? Does finding an entry-level position become much more difficult once you have graduated college (and can’t go through campus recruiting)?

Any advice?
