    Don't limit yourself by only applying to 'computer' places! Almost
    any business needs people with computer skills. I work for a non-prof
    retail operation that has absolutely nothing to do with computers, but
    we sure use a lot of them :) I've worked with computers for a
    magazine and for the govt: everyone's got 'em.

    Even if the job you're hired for isn't 'tech,' it's not hard to get
    promoted if you know your stuff. Establish yourself as the person to
    come to when computer problems arise (without stepping on IT's toes).
    Try to pick up some freelance work; it'll give you experience and some
    references. Ask your friends if their employers need anyone to set up
    a database- or apply with a temp agency. Short term projects are
    great because they expose you to a variety of businesses and tasks;
    it'll help you figure out what sort of job you really want.
