You seem to be an average person, with no high marks in college and average qualities, like me, the best choice for a 9 to 6 job.

Please, for the love of God, don't force yourself on IT, God is giving you a chance to try something else by not giving you a job in IT.

I forced myself into IT from another environment, and after 5 years of it, I hate it from the bottom of my heart. Every day going to work kills me inside, words cannot explain the pain and agony I am in.

I feel like why did I get into this mess and now I can't find a way out.

You seem to be an average person, with no high marks in college and average qualities, like me, the best choice for a 9 to 6 job.

Please, for the love of God, don't force yourself on IT, God is giving you a chance to try something else by not giving you a job in IT.

I forced myself into IT from another environment, and after 5 years of it, I hate it from the bottom of my heart. Every day going to work kills me inside, words cannot explain the pain and agony I am in.

I feel like why did I get into this mess and now I can't find a way out.

Today is Sunday night and tomorrow is Monday, day to go to work, I cannot sleep because I am afraid to go to work because I know that I have no other option than to work quietly under pressure without complaining because I have the responsibility to support my family .

Even if I sleep, I am haunted by strange nightmares, usually never involving work, but usually by snakes and ghosts in my sleep.

The team on the ground in Israel or the USA creates the so-called user stories and assigns them to us poor Indians who barely have a few days to complete them, which means extending their working hours to an average of 10 hours per day.

They will force you to work shifts so that you can take their status calls in which they demoralize you and tell you that you are useless.

You will get all kinds of income and health problems because you are sitting for 10 hours a day in a chair.

Your neck, shoulders, back and legs will ache, do not forget about hemorrhoids because you sit for a long time, you will not have time to exercise, you will have a round belly, you will become depressed, high blood pressure will increase. See you soon.

Even after many years of work, your job will never be insured, you will always worry about when the company might evict you.

The good thing is doing your life and your loved ones a favor by not giving yourself a job in IT, appreciating it, and trying to do something good in your life instead of joining YOU.

Human resources departments have created a wall around their companies to keep the undesirables out. Unfortunately, they are also excluding great candidates. I had first-hand experience with this when I couldn't get a job even though I have a computer science degree and an MBA from one of the best business schools, 15 years of exceptional experience, an excellent resume, and various certifications. This is what I have earned.

  1. You have everything you need to find the right job for you. There is always more you can add to your resume, although that doesn't stop you from getting a job.

  1. You have everything you need to find the right job for you. There is always more you can add to your resume, although that doesn't stop you from getting a job.
  2. Network, network, network. Get out there and meet people. Go meet your next boss. This is the key. People hire people they like and consider suitable.
  3. Focus your energy on the companies you want to work for. Five is a good number.
  4. Customize your resume and cover letters for each and every job. Make sure they meet the job requirements.
  5. Don't submit thousands of requests and hope for the best. It does not work. See above.
  6. Find a team of job seekers (5) to help you. This can be very powerful. Meet with them at least once a week. Support each other with positive emotions, contacts, ideas, sounding board, CV reviews, interview preparation, ...
  7. Stay positive. Meditate, go for a walk, exercise, laugh with your friends,… whatever it takes. Nobody wants to hire a depressed person.

Good luck!

Hmm. I see a lot of questions about what to study for a degree in Computer Engineering and Information Technology. The terms are so vague that they are almost useless, especially when looking for work. Information technology can be anything from a professional-level course in keeping computers running to a highly specialized job in computer science. So my first question for you is can you be more specific about the job you are looking for? Simply saying Information Technology doesn't tell the person reading your resume much about you, your education, or your skills.

Second, see if you can get help improving your resume and interviewing skills, especially your appearance. First impressions are important! The first page of your resume may be the only thing that reads. Make it count! Do you have technical references? Can they help you network?

Third, you may need to work for free by volunteering your time with a non-profit organization. They always need help and you will learn skills (including people skills) and gain experience that you can use on your resume.

Network, network, network! Join a professional society related to the type of job you are looking for and attend local meetings. You will meet people who will know when jobs will be available before they are announced.

It's not just about experience ... even with the right experience, you look the wrong way (spam resumes) and the chances are slim

Eventually you get to the point where they call you and ask for you, but you're not there yet.

Unfortunately, the title only gives you a chance, not a right ... and sometimes not even that.

I doubt you can get a good job without experience. However, in IT you don't need a job to gain experience.

Go to Github and develop open source projects. Both individual and collective projects. If they are good, they can be added to your curriculum.

I have a lot of experience in my CV, however in interviews I always talk about a large, complex and open source project that I developed by myself during my Master. This project is used for teaching and research at the university, and is one of the few on a list of genetic programming frameworks. The fact that I did it is just a bonus.

With code to show off, you can start applying for jobs, contracts, and freelancers. You can also attend a short technology course that allows you to get an internship.

However, be sure to study and get opinions from other developers. The code you are displaying should be good to say the least.

For other readers, focus on getting an internship during your college years. IT is one of the few areas where a lack of experience is far worse than a lack of a diploma.

Make sure you don't aim too high. Don't be afraid of the help desk or entry-level places to put your foot in the door. It is desirable to have a desire to learn and work on top of experience and education. Getting the interview is really the first step. Make sure to clean up and show some passion when answering questions. Ignite that spark of excitement in your eyes when you speak on the subject. When you get to the entry-level position, work hard. Keep learning. Be a fire and forget about a gun that doesn't need to be cared for. Write things down and stay organized. Ask questions about mastering the certificate

Keep learning. Be a fire and forget about a gun that doesn't need to be cared for. Write things down and stay organized. Ask questions about how to master certain things. Where can I learn more is always a good question. Ask what the career path is for SysAdmin or NetAdmin or whatever interests you and work towards it.

Do you have skills, passion for IT?

If so, stop waiting for a job, just start doing some projects (like if you know Android or iOS then have some apps upload them to PlayStore, Appstore etc and start making money from them).

Freelance, the simplest but not the easiest way to earn money.

And if you really want to work in the IT industry, do some personal projects in whatever programming language you choose, implement some good algorithms in it, upload them to your github profile, and show your work to recruiters. You will have a much better chance of getting a job easily.

I hope this helps.

First of all, the problem you are facing is that your resume is not being shortlisted.

  1. So, start with improving your resume. Show any projects, internships you have done.
  2. Try looking for internships with IT companies, even if they are free.
  3. Contact smaller software development companies and apply for a job or offer an internship.
  4. Make a list of freelance jobs on various websites like fiverr (among others). This would help you get some money and a lot of experience.
  5. Lastly, do some IT project for yourself from home. This would show the recruiter your seriousness.

You have two challenges: start networking and gain work experience. You need to start communicating with your friends and fellow graduates - where are they working now? Are there openings there? You can also check your Uni's career office: how do they help graduates? What are the options at your location? Would it be more feasible to move?

If you can, find a way to use your expertise, even in a small way: as a freelancer or for a charity or NGO.

Finally, if you need to decide if you need additional qualifications or certifications. Good luck.

A course that offers training + 100% placement guarantee may work best for you. ThinkQuotient Software offers Full Stack Development training with a 100% placement guarantee. They have placed over 350 students in the last 2 years and have ties to over 100 IT companies. I hope this helps.

If you have the means, get some certifications. Get certified in MS or programming languages, or whatever your major. The certifications got me started. The other thing you might want to check out is help desk support. That's something most new techs (including me) start at. It's not the best job, but it will give you experience in IT and also dealing with people, which is extremely valuable to put on your resume. Good luck!
