Contract termination


I graduated from University last year. I have less than one year of working experience in the finance (non-banking) industry. I recently have my contract terminated for misconduct because I disclosed my salary information to a friend who applied to the same opening of my position and our discussion was overheard and recorded at a coffee shop by a supervisor. And as expected, I get no good reference.

I have been unemployed for a few months already and I am feeling devastated. 
It has been so tough for me to land jobs after the incident. It is my first job since graduation, and I have only one internship in my life.

Is there any way that can get me back in finance-related field?
