    I would like some people to contact me regarding jobs.

    I cant find one, and am tired of searching job postings and applying.

    Anyone out there know of jobs, and care to make contact?

    I.T. is a challenging field to get into right now without a lot of flexibility and a willingness to move almost anywhere. 5 years ago I could open a browser session on Monster.com and see literally pages of postings in my field. Nowadays I go into Monster.com and see 4 or 5 listings total.

    If you don't have industry experience, go find yourself a charitable organization and volunteer your services as an I.T. guy (in your spare time of course). It pays nothing but it allows you to list it as direct industry experience on your resume.

    Since you did not post your resume or provide a link, I am afraid I must ignore you. No offense, but posting in a forum is not the way to go about it. And sometimes, regardless of how tired you are, you must keep going to interviews and handing out your resumes.

    You might be well qualified, but your post lacks essential information people that want to hire you need to know. Like will you relocate or do you have experience in the PC world or Mac or Linux/UNIX.

    I do not know you so I can't recommend you. And I know of a local company looking for IT people. The money is beyond grand. But they want people with prior experience.

    Good luck you you, it can be tough.

    Put your resume up on line on Dice, Careerbuilder, LinkedIn, etc... I've had three head hunters call me this year without me even actively looking. Interviewed with a couple of them. Got a job offer with one. Turned it down. Just talked to a head hunter this afternoon who called me and was looking for someone for a contract position. I'm looking for something permanent. Still, people are looking for IT people.

    Yep, get resume online with the sites mentioned.

    I'm now working on a contract after an agent found me on www.jobserve.com (a popular IT jobs site in the UK). Apart from a weeks work with HP (which found ME in just the same way) I had not worked for a while. It's tough out there right now so you have to work at getting yourself noticed.
