How can I start to rebuild my credit after bankruptcy?

I filed for bankruptcy in late January of this year and my debts are set to be discharged on May 8th. How do I begin to repair my credit now? I’ve looked at several similar questions here and most responses are to get a credit card and use it and pay it off well before the due date each month.

But what credit card? Who’s going to touch me right now? I’ve heard I’m not as much of a risk since they know I can’t file again for 7 years (not that I ever plan to do this again).

I’m afraid if I apply for a credit card and get turned down, it’s going to hurt my credit.

Any suggestions?
