It's tough to get a start but I would recommend that you focus on marketing your personal skills which are also of interest to a perspective employer. It's tough to teach things like punctuality,strong work ethic,honesty, positive, attitude, commitment etc. These are the qualities that define the best in any industry and a employee with these attributes plus a strong skill set is highly coveted in any industry. A employee without these no matter how skilled is usually a problem in some regard for their employer. Show your passion and enthusiasm and I guarantee you some employer out there will be impressed. Keep track of who you send your resume to and if and when they call be prepared. That tip alone will put you ahead of the compatition. If I had a nickel for every candidate I have called over the years about a job and they seem confused or don't remember sending the resume which to be honest never impresses me. Put yourself in the employers position and their fear is in taking a risk of hiring a newbie who may or may not stay. Training and turnover cost money! Be prepared to start at the bottom and pay your dues but with persistence this is a great trade to be in.

If you are just starting out, try to stay under a dealer for a few years or a very large out fit with at least 20 peaces of machinery. Do not, work with a mom and pop sized out fit, you will learn a lot of bad habbits and improper procedures.
