What jobs are available to new graduates without pratical experience? Should I give up trying to look for related work until I gain a related Master's degree?

The field of linguistics is so broad that I don't even know how to start a job search. I have an undergraduate degree in Applied Linguistics and experience teaching English as a foreign language, but want to move away from this field and into a career field that could offer long-term growth. Or is a bachelor's degree essentially worthless and I should keep studying and once I have a graduate degree start looking for serious career opportunities?
