What do I do now?

I graduated this year, didn't manage to get any finance internships while at uni, rejections are rolling in again and it's not looking like I'll get anything for 2023. My CV has improved leaps and bounds, as well as my commercial awareness and general interview/interpersonal skills. I just don't know where I go from here if I don't get anything during this recruitment cycle as opportunities are limited to current students/recent grads...

Any guidance/pep talks would be really appreciated, London-based.
