Are there any jobs for entry level IT professionals? I don't think so.
After over 3 years since I got my Bachelor degree in computer science I am tired of looking for a job as a programmer, developer, analyst etc.
I tried everything - learned new stuff like .Net, sent thousands of applications and resumes and nothing - just couple interviews and no job.
Lately I found a job... I will unload trailers in a warehouse. No it's not a joke, it's life... I will make less than $10 per hour... If I just could make $10 as a programmer, it would be great...
I like programming, math, solving problems, but unfortunately I will have to do something that I don't think I will like. Well, at least that job will pay my bills.
I was thinking about Masters in CS, some certifications (I am SCJP), but what for? There is no room for entry level IT professionals in todays job market (unless you have a degree from an Ivy League school).
Maybe in meantime I will look for something else and one day I might post a new topic in this forum informing that I found a job in IT industry. The problem is that I don't know if I am strong enough to look for a job in IT industry again - I have spent last three years doing it...
For now I am going to my warehouse - packages are waiting to be unloaded from a trailer.
Good luck everybody.
