This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

I went straight in to a school working alongside system admins with a completely unrelated degree. Basic knowledge of things such as Active Directory, Windows Server 2003-2008 and Exchange 2003-2010 should help you get some way towards a training position. I don't believe it's worth jumping straight in as a system admin, maybe look at doing some technician work for one and work your way up. Maybe your university has a department in which you could volunteer?
