May 2016 Grad Needs Advice

Hi all,

I am about to graduate in May 2016 with my combined MS & BS in accounting, but right now I don't have a job because I didn't do well in my junior year when most of the recruitments happened, with only one semester and 3 graduate classes left, I currently have a 3.9 graduate GPA. However, because most companies had their openings filled and I do not have relevant internship experiecne, I find it difficult to find jobs despite having decent grades and decent social skills, I have already applied to many jobs through my university's career service and LinkedIn in the past few days, but I have not gotten any response yet. What can I do to get a job before I graduate in May 2016? Here's a breakdown of my transcript.

Undergraduate overall: 3.7          Gradaute overall: 3.9

Intro to Accounting 1 & 2: A

Excel for Accounting: A

Intermediate Accounting 1 & 2: B

Intro to Accounting Information System: B+

Individual Taxation: C+ 

Intro to Audit: B+

Cost and Managerial Accounting: A-

Governmental Accounting: A

Intermediate Accounting 3: A

Capstone in Accounting: A-

Advanced Audit: A

About to take Advanced Accounting Information System, Internal Audit, and Corporate Governance next semester. 

I have been involved in a few accounting, consulting, and sport organizations throughout undergrad (but I didn't have major leadership role).

I have A in all my English, writing-intensive, and public speaking classes. 

What should I do? I appreciate any helpful advice.
