Chase Freedom isn't a hard card to get, but you basically have no credit history and Chase is a prime lender. Doesn't sound like you are in college, so your options are newcomer cards or secured cards. Thats okay as you will quickly build credit history and be able to ditch them assuming history is positive. Newcomer cards are Capital One for newcomers. Credit unions have them too. Secured cards are all around. Just get one with low/no fees.
Amex Centurion, Amex Platinum, Amex BCP 8k->24k (5/23/12), Amex TE 15k, Cap One 1.5% 15k->20k (8/7/13), CSP 25k, Chase Palladium 100k, Citibank AA 35k (AU), Firestone 1.8k->2.2k->2.4k (8/20/12), JFCU Jloc 30k, PenFed Plat Rewards 30k, SF Fire 30k, US Bank Cash+ 25k

Bank of America has a good secured card. They check the account periodically and once you have a good history they will likely give you an unsecured credit card.
