  1. If There are so many It jobs in the US then how come someone like me with their A+ Cert cannot even find an entry level job? there aren’t any jobs out there. Not in NY or most of the country. I’m going to get more certs and am going to pray. Right now I see absolutely no job prospects in my career or any career other than healthcare. nursing is the only industry currently hiring.
