    Man, I’ve been looking for a job in IT field for three weeks but no luck! It’s hard to find a job these days. Does anyone have the same problem like me?

    Thank you for your response. Yeah, I did post my resume at careerbuilder and monster.com, but didn’t get any good result yet. It’s just too many competitions. Thousands of people compete for a few jobs online. Resumes are sent out to most agencies and companies like crazy! There goes my hope and I ain’t got any connections. What should I do? ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

    Wow, they said you were not qualified for Macy? Sorry to hear that. I know it’s tough out there. I know how you feel.

    I’m sorry to hear you’re having problems. My recommendation is to get certification in areas that are practical. Look into certification in ERP systems whether in accounting, MRP, or inventory system. These software systems are the backbone of any company.

    Yeah base on my questionaires I answered online and whatever reason it is. I don’t care what kind of job I have as long it have health benefit. I don’t want to commute either so that is another drawback. The only experience I have is in the hospital and I don’t want to go back either since it will make me sick again, so I’m trying to change field. If by the end of this year I don’t have a job, I will renew my license and suck it up or use my connection.

    Maybe you should consider out of state job for IT or change work field.

    I got a response from one company called Epic. This company creates software or programs for healthcare or other stuff. One of their recruiters liked my resume, and he thought I could be qualified for their Software Development Position. The problem was that the company is located in Wisconsin. I’m pretty sure that the pay is really good for that position, but I don’t want to move out of state. You know I could care less for right now. I’ll work in any field as long as I get some money to pay for my bills. At the same time, I’ll continue to look for a job in IT field. Again, thank you for your reply. I’m very concerned about today’s economy. I don’t see any sign that the U.S economy will recover anytime soon.

    I’ve been looking for a job in IT for 3 YEARS! And still no luck. Finally I decided to take things in my own hand and start my own company as a freelance web developer.

    Over the years I submitted probably more than 4000 resumes, had about 40 interviews, but couldn’t land a single job.

    I’ve had some pretty good luck going on to the career pages of Fortune 500 companies and applying directly through them,but my field is not IT related. Indeed.com is a good place to start.

    I’m not in the unemployment position but I’m looking to make a career change. I’m afraid that if I stay where I’m at, I’m going to get sucked deeper into this corporate world. I’m torn between stability and taking a leap to do something different.

    IT is so 2000 during the dotcom boom. The market for IT field has been saturated due to the rise of human resources from India and China. This decade is telecom boom. We’re seeing a lot of talks about smartphones and tablets and their means to communicate and compute, 3G and 4G LTE, etc. In this field, if you’re graduated in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science and have some knowledge in communication, wireless communication and RF, etc. There are plenty of jobs out there.

    You should have linkedin profile and networks. It’s all about networks. If you don’t have, you’re considered outsider and risky for any companies or even the staffing agencies to hire you.

    Networking is king these days. I got my current job through a friend, and my friend got another job through another friend. There is less risk when a company hire based from someone they know and trust. The friend would have also done a job fit analysis so the qualified referral makes the HR’s job and the hiring manager’s job easier. This is why most companies have a referral bonus to encourage their employee to refer qualified candidates.

    How’s the job hunt? BTW, our hospital uses EPIC, it’s a good system. But I agree with prior posts, that u have to be willing to relocate if you want to stick to your field. Look at me, I moved out to massachusetts from california for my job b/c so few positions for my field are available in CA. Luckily, I got a lot of family out here. It’s all about experiences.. and experience is what i’ll need to stay current and competitive for the next decade or so. I do plan on goin back to CA in about 3 years after completing a lil unfinished business.

    Also, keep reading. U think learning stops once school is over? think again. Big theme is stay current and ahead.

    Did mine 5 yrs ago… It depends on what job you choose… Tech trade (comms, medical,etc) is harder to get in then infantry.

    Had a lady in my unit who failed the test three times, but the commander let her take it again because we were short of personnel.
