I have been living in Chicago for around 2 months now. During that time I
have been trying to seek employment as an entry level networking guy. I am
not trying to advertise myself here but I am interested in other
people’s opinion of what I should do at this stage of my career.
I have just graduated from university with a BS in computer communications
and networks. After which, I immigrated to Chicago from London. The
problem is I am having real trouble finding a job here.
Most jobs seem to require experience, which I only have 2 years of. What
can I do to get some experience? I have looked high and low but I am unable
to find anything. I am currently studying for CCNA but I don't think this
will help me much as I have little networking experience to back it up.
How do things work in this country? How does anybody get experience in the
first place? I would be willing to work for free if I could find a job. I
think USA is in for a long hard recession. I am no expert on global
economics but from the little I know, USA is going to get a lot worse before
it gets better.
Anyway, what should I do? I know the obvious answer is to go back to
England. But my wife really likes it here, so I am stuck here in a bit of a
Any advice, comments etc would be more than appreciated
