Obtain a job in IT

By paulcz ·
I am completing my BS on-line in IT and would like to know how to get into the field?
I am over 45 and have no formal employment in that field.
I just am wondering where to look and how to make my previous experience, manly in electronics, to get into the IT field.

If you are someone that does hire in the IT field, what would help me to get a job at your company?

Everybody needs IT

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to Obtain a job in IT

especially firms who's domain is electronics, retail or manufacturing, your previous experience should be a big plus. If I was you, I'd try the firms I used to work for, send them a nice letter.

Try the Temp Companies

by TX_Techie In reply to Obtain a job in IT

I know that Kelly Temporary's has a technical department that may be able to get you a few positions that will alow you to pick up some work experience. With a background in electronics, you should land a few positions quick.

Just don't let them forget that you have a BA.
