What kind of design work experience is necessary?

I have recently graduated with a graphic design degree and have real issues finding work in a design firm due to lack of experience. So have taken a job as an inhouse designer/ marketer at a hotel.
Will this type of job give me the experience that i need to be considered in a design firm or am i just wasting my time?

My first job (18 years ago) was in the marketing department of a college. Once you have your first job and some experience it is much easier to get your second (that’s what I found anyway). You can always do some freelance design in your spare time too to make up your portfolio.
