Breaking into the job market

Im a recent graduate eager to make use of my degree. Ive been applying to help desk jobs, network technician jobs… Basically anything entry level that i can find ive applied to. My question for those who came before me is what methods appeared to work that helped you with employers? So far i submit the application and wait a few dahs then reach out if i havent heard back from them to show continued interest.

You probably won’t like hearing this, but a degree alone will not get you far, if anywhere.

A lot of employers are going to want experience, and DEFINITELY are going to want certifications.

Experience is typically general IT experience, anything from helpdesk to sysadmin.

Certifications will typically be Security+, offered by CompTia.

Any candidate that has a certification and/or experience would likely be higher on the stack of resumes than a degree alone.
