Best source to obtain IT experience

I have seen different discussions that focus on the debate of certifications versus on the job training. Seems that everyone agrees that OJT is best and certifications are icing on the cake.

But, for new people who have their cne and or mcse certifications where do they go to obtain OBJ? I found that its kind of a catch 22 situation. You have to have experience to get the job but you need the job to get the job.

In my search for and IT position I was amazed how easy it was to get A position as a network consultant with a systems integrator providing PC and Network support for customers, mom and pop operations to larger busineses.

I worked for as a It network consultant for approximately two years and got downsized. Appears business is great when they have business but when business slows people get their walking papers.

I know that working as a consultant is a great learning experience your a jack of all trades but and expert at none.

Quite frankly after two years I'mkind of burned out with this type of existence.
Any thoughts??
