Now What?

I just received my associates in IT, but I need some experience to start working in the field. Is there any staffing agencies or free programs that can help me get hands on experience?

Where to go after the degree?

I am finishing my degree in a few weeks and I have been looking actively since January but I have ran into the issue that all employers want experience. Now I have years of retail and sales experience but I am finishing my degree in computer science so I want to find a job in the IT field. If anyone had suggestions or if they know of an entry level position in the Phoenix please let me know.

Just a little more information about my job search activity: I have applied for approximately 50 jobs a week for close to 5 months and have only gone on 8 in person interviews and 15 over the phone interviews. The biggest issue people seem to have is that I do not have experience.

What are some tech jobs that require little to no programming?

I enjoy programming, but not as much as my CS classmates and I am not as good at it and I’m not particularly enjoying the math courses I've been taking in my CS program. I still want to work in the tech industry on the technical not business side. What opportunities are there?

Certificate & Employment question.
I currently have the CWNA,CWSP,A+, Net+ certs. Having a hard time finding employment in Southwest Florida. Before I spend money and time on the CCNA for the scarce Network positions, what cert would help me in finding a desktop support / Help Desk position, which seem to be more available here. Thank you.

www.linkedin.com/in/timforrester "I was privileged to have Tim Forrester on my team while Director of Integration Services at Innovative Technologies. Tim is a skilled team leader and manager and brings a broad background in A/V systems and technologies to the table. He is a strong contributor and will be an asset to any project team." — Louis Brown, managed Tim Forrester at Innovative Technologies, Inc.

"Tim and I have worked together in several projects during his tenure at ITI as the installation manager. Tim was a great manager who lead the installation team to overcome many issues encountered on projects. Tim was highly respected by his team for his willingness to mentor anyone who needs helps. He is well organized, very knowledgeable in building broadcast and audio visual systems, and exceedingly friendly and reachable." — Kwok Ho, worked directly with Tim Forrester at Innovative Technologies, Inc.

"As AV/Broadcast Installation Technician at Innovative Technologies, Inc., I had the pleasure of working for Mr. Tim Forrester. Tim is kind, courteous, thoughtful, and considerate of everyone who surrounds him. Never quick to accept the glory of the Integration Departments' many successfully completed projects, Tim would always recognize his employees and lift them to a high regard, inspiring them and leading to further department success. Tim demonstrated the ability to routinely clearly communicate objectives, strategically implement plans, and diligently execute those plans to reach said objectives, leading to an overwhelming comfort level of our team feeling well prepared as we were approaching a mission. Always calm and collected, Tim revealed true leadership through a humble approach and attitude. I will always regard Tim as one of the best Managers that I have had the honor of working for. With pleasure, I recommend and endorse Mr. Tim Forrester. Christopher "CP" Patterson Department of State, Project Analyst" — Christopher S. Patterson, PMP, worked indirectly for Tim Forrester at Innovative Technologies, Inc.

"I recruited Tim Forrester for a senior AV Tech position. This role required a great deal of leadership and audio video expertise, both in theory and in practical experience. Management quickly gauged how much Tim knew about AV and how well clients and colleagues responded to him. He was quickly promoted from an AV Tech to the Integration Manager position. As the Integration Manager, Tim was responsible for the on-time delivery of every AV project. This meant he had to keep track of schedules in Excel; ensure proper integration per plan; make sure his staff was adequately trained, and everything was done with care and quality. Messy cables were his pet peeve. While ensuring QA, Tim had to keep up with chaotic project deadlines while he kept management, the client and his staff pleased. This was not an easy tasked, but Tim is an outstanding problem solver. He’s not only an excellent technician and manager, he is a great person. He’s friendly, listens well and is easy to talk to. What is a significant plus is that Tim is also a good writer. Tim’s verbal communication is as impeccable as his ability to provide detailed reports. If you’re looking for an exceptional AV Manager with commercial, government and military experience, contact Tim Forrester. You’ll be glad that you did. Jennifer Lightburn Former Recruiter – Innovative Technologies now with TeAM, Inc." — Jennifer Lightburn, worked with Tim Forrester at Innovative Technologies, Inc.

"When I began working with Tim he came to ITI during a very critical phase of ITI's history. Each task we tackled together with exacting deliberation which resulted in every success needed for the companies largest project in it's history. He progressed into the Integration Managers position which was a great compliment to the team building atmosphere Tim brings to every task presented to him. His focus on organizing the crews needs for each project is his strong-point in each successful completion." — Benjamin Cary, CTS, CTS-I, reported to Tim Forrester at Innovative Technologies, Inc.
