You may be able to apply to campus jobs up to 6 months to a year after graduating, so that will be something to do in the fall if you can't find anything this summer. Otherwise, jump on linkedin, reach out to your alumni network with the same degrees, and cold message people who have jobs that you want.

Do you have any relevant internships or experience on your resume? You probably want to search for associate data scientist positions as those are usually for recent grads

Started a new gig in January and the work is just ok…now an agency I’ve always wanted to work at is calling. Problem is, it’s in the city I’m currently in, and I’ve been wanting to move to a different market for a while. I’d get to do more funny stuff at this shop that wants to bring me on. I can kinda do that where I’m at now, so it does feel a little like a lateral move. Should I stick it out and keep trying in this city or make a move to a bigger market?
