Ok, I got the certification. Now where are the jobs? I
don't get it! Why is IT hit so hard? You would think
that companies are DEPENDANT on their computers in this
day and age. Did everyone decide to go back to using
typewriters and file cabinets?? Then who in the world is
running all of IT? Because NO ONE IS HIRING!

You know, if you spell your name backwards, you get "lime." Pretty cool.
Also, the jobs are in aidni and anihc.

the senior people in this group have been saying this for some time
now....the newbies will have a VERY hard time finding work if they find
any at all!
It's really lousy out there.....go study how to be a nurse - those jobs
ARE in demand and will be for many years to come. People are living
longer, older people mean more health care needs for society...you do
the math!

Five ways to getting a job in IT:

1) An IT Education
2) IT Experience
3) IT Certification(s)
4) Know someone on the inside
5) Have a terrific personality

The market is saturated with people who have more than one item from the
list above. If all you have is one item from this list, either get more
items from the list, or expect to rely on luck in getting a job.

Of course, you could be in my situation, where I have all of the above at my
present job, my boss is quitting, and theystill went outside to look for
someone to replace her.

corporate environment.

No. Don't bother. You should learn C... or I... as a first language, and
English as a second language. Seems to me that's how IT is these days. Of
course, what do you expect when all the jobs are in aidnI or anihC...

that's a bitch! in some organizations, once you get in at a certiain level,
it's really hard to convince someone you can do something else.

also, perhaps there is a management experience requirement for that job
that you may not posses. in which case, time to take some lame management
courses and put them on the resume..

with me, you got to have hands-on "in depth" server diagnostics & repair
experience, which is impossible to get 'cause the vendor takes care of
that. duh!
