For the unemployed for more than 6 months, give up the I.T chase. The market has a nack for weeding out the weak. To be unemployed for so long means that something is wrong with you not the certs or degrees you have. Find another job in another feild. The I.T world is not a secure or stable industry to be in. Only the strong survive in this jungle.

onoski, How long have you been looking for work in IT? IT is pretty competitive these days. There are all sorts of animals out there wanting the same things as you.

But that's life, it's all about a struggle and hence you too shouldn't give up as you are talented and have the potential. I think you should look into databases, wireless network and even Unix and Linux. I for one ain't giving up as I have put way too much effort into gaining my IT experience qualifications not to even mention the money involved.

I know how you feel, but as you rightly said it's survival of the fittest. It would be a shame to give up at this stage as well as a waste of time which is a very valuable asset. I hope I was able to shed light on this aspect as I know it can be really daunting. Winners don't quit and quitters don't win. It's the first phrase for me:D Cheerio.

Thanks, for the link Frank as I have been visiting this site more than a year now. Thanks, once more as I am certainly not going to let negative feedbacks put me off.

Thanks, jackiechan as I am very well rounded in these areas listed above apart from Unix, which I only started looking into for about six months now. Linux Red Hat, and am finding it pretty interesting and challenging too. How well vast are you in these areas Jackiechan?

haha i just had a good laugh.

wanna know why?

check his posts...

start with failing 210 with a score of 360, then magically pass all tests in 2.5 months. this is around september.

fastforward to end of january 2002 with his losing his job. him asking if he is worth $90 dollars/hour in albania, then lowering it to 35...

2 days later on feb 1st, it is now this

CCNA and MCSE are yesterday's certifications

I am a computer science graduate and I am finding it had to compete with people who have more experience and certifications
<-read on

but notice just a week earlier he said this.

Quote
I am 43 years old. I have close to 20 years experience in I.T. I currently work for a government agency doing database and unix support. I have skills in Unix, Crytal reports, Betrieve and some programming.
 <--- 20 years of IT exp! take this with the previous about not enough experience to compete? (for senior lvl management perhaps, but it should be no problem settling for something less than that, but he settled all the way to McDonald? is his supposedly experience, insight and what not BS?

then we find the root of his discontent.

Quote
If the market is turning then why am I working as a trainee manager at McDonalds


man, I seriously thought its like an inside joke you guys have about him working at mcD but haha this is funny.  so basically he is saying in this post is that HE can not compete. a post of self pity.

I get it now, thanks for sparking my interest and keeping me busy while I watch korea vs italy.

Where I live, almost no employers are hiring except for Microsoft, and they require a BSc degree, meaning that if one is unemployed and does not have a BSc, one will remain in that state for the forseeable future. Doesn't mean a defective personality or anything like that, just that there aren't enough jobs to go around at the moment.

Anyone who isn't brilliant, however, would be silly to enter the I.T. field now, because the days of plenty for all, instead of just the best, are over. There are other occupations that are much more lucrative now than I.T., and don't require a 180-point IQ for success (such as pharmacy and nursing).
