Help Acquiring A Credit Card
Hello Everyone,

I'm trying to build my credit and acquire my first credit card. I have been out of college for about a year now and I have been working a full time job at a large corporation since the day I graduated. I was able to purchase a new vehicle at the beginning of this year through Ford Credit. I figured it would be a wise investment while improving my credit score at the same time. The crazy thing is that I still get my credit card applications denied (Capitol One and Chase Freedom so far). Each letter said that I was denied because I didn't have enough credit history. How do I improve this?
