Not all experience in a field are hard skills either, so even if your experience is trivial in one field some of it may still be desireable to employers (IE, good customer service skills or interpersonal skills). Put some emphasis on those kinds of skills, if you believe they will be transferable to a job you're going after.
If you're just coming out of college/school, then you're stuck in a catch 22. You might want to get any job that will show show you've worked in an office or customer service role, even if it's out of the field you're studying for. This can go a long way to helping you secure a job in the field you want later on. Pay your dues, etc.

Of a choice between the two, experience will always trump "education" if it is a choice between one or the other. Being able to do it, and having proven that you have done it is always going to be preferable to having read about how to do it.
