Got friends?

by mafergus In reply to Gaining Experience

Talk to any techie friends you have. Scrounge up older (spelled cheap) equipment. Find out if there are family or friends needing assistance. get comfortable with the technology and be able to back up what you know when asked. Breaks will come. It ust takes a good attitude and hard work.

Voluntary work, open source

consulting, shareware, internship...
If this came as a surprise to you, kick your careers adviser in the nads, and then slap yourself for relying on them...

You could also get a position working with hardware/system deployments. The key is getting in the door. The rest will take care of itself.
