So at the end of February, my 8 year marriage met it's catastrophic end and I had to immediately relocate, with nada, to a state I've never before set foot in. I was hoping to find an entry level tech position, as I am largely self taught and don't have any certs. So far nothing. I spent 7 years as a cable tech, have to wait another few months to apply at the cable company, but everywhere else tells me I'm overqualified, or need certs/experience in the field. It's a bit discouraging. That's it. Rant over.

    I am sorry you had to go through that. I hope that you will find something suitable in the near future.

    Good luck!

    The only advice I can give you is to follow opportunity. Don't just apply for jobs that you like, apply for ones in demand too. The jobs might be boring and may not be what you want but if that's where the opportunity lies, that's where the cash is. Took me a long time to follow this principle in a disciplined manner.

    @ymas that's where I'm at. Applying for everything... It'll come I'm sure... Just a stressful moment in time.

    I have no interest in this company but I’ve heard of a company called triplebyte that does background blind job matching. Their client companies give triplebyte tests and the company knows if you pass certain tests they want you, certs or degrees or not.
