            bruh you're probably just moronic generally if you have 4 yoe and no certs.
            You're not getting hired because there's tons of people who have the same or more experience, as well as the cert(s), and companies will choose them every time.

            I have a degree too and I still get and maintain relevant certs. The degree is probably useless, except maybe as a tie breaker.

            Certs are worth more than degrees by a mile as well.
            Continue to struggle.

            It's not the certs, it's the lack of friends, referrals or anything that demonstrates capabilities. Degrees are just worthless pieces of paper that show you don't have critical thinking or math skills.

        A single useless project is meaningless
        If all you have for 5 years experience is some FOSS slop you've not done enough
        Not to mention, you know, all the projects you got paid to do. I don't even need to show my personal portfolio because I can just show them the real projects I made that are live.

    You have to network with people. Resumes are a meme and are only a corporate requirement. In my job I was basically hired before they even asked to see my resume because I had someone on the inside who played hype man.

      >You have to network with people.
      I wish someone told me this when i was a kid. Now i see that 99.9% of people that have any kind of success have a decent network or at least one person at the right place. Its so fricking easy once you realize and use this information.
      Of course you still have to be competent but ouf of the thousands of competent people the ones with the right friends win, every time. Also if your network is strong enough you dont even need to be competent

            Why would you pick your hooker or dealer over someone who got a 36 on the act? Honestly. Why do that. Your best friend is likely a POS who even raped babies. best friends are shit.

      Sometimes I worry about this like yeah I'm here but if that is it then okay. I take my job pretty seriously and after or even doing an awesome job sometimes complete idiots just think nah uh. It's like if you ran really fast, coach still doesn't put you in and at best you get something like well if you just applied your talent more or some absolute dumb shit

      At the same time it is almost always some dumb shit we're doing. Trying to get work done despite management being moronic, half the team having way way worse attitudes but actually being right about things

      Being apolitical is death because people do want you to have their backs even when they're wrong, they want friends and think if you're not friends you're friends with someone else. Once you are friends you can increase in power and just spread shit over everyone

        The CS program at my state school had to do all of the same project classes that SWE kids did, and companies pick up people without any rigorous or formal education for IT positions all the time so I can't imagine it being too hard in either case...

      Yes, but more importantly you have to *do real projects*. In 2024 your personal projects and contributions are your unpaid internship. You'll never even get a real response unless you have a nice portfolio with a paper trail or come from an actual quality CS education where you're poached right out graduation. The job market for SE is fine, but the free ride of morons is over.

    I have 5 years of experience at a pretty good company but got laid off. I thought I'd get filtered by interviews because I haven't done enough data structure practice but what's surprising is that I'm barely getting any interviews at all. I just kind of assumed it would be way easier to get in once you had experience.

    Bro i'm in the I.T. boat too and of course the market took a shit when i'm still in helpdesk.

    I have got my Net+ Sec+ AZ-900 and Linux LPI essentials all in the last like 2 months and have like 2 years help-desk experience and I want out. It's so fricking boring making sure users plugged in their monitors.

    I'm finishing my bachelors while I slog through password reset tickets at work though on the brightside and some more Azure and AWS certs..

      >AZ-900
      my brother in Christ, there is no reason to get an Azure cert below AZ-104 (associate administrator)
      I mean this sincerely, stop getting baby certs and get a real admin level one.

        also when trying to get off helpdesk, if the company you're at isn't an option. Consulting and managed services is the way to go. Don't pay attention to the requirements. Anyone who actually meets the posted requirements isn't gonna deal with that shit.

        Also lie and say you were a jr sysadmin or tier II helpdesk by the time you left. If they do any kind of check they're just going to see if you were actually employed there.

    I have just 1 yoe and have been laid off since January. I was getting steady interviews every week or so, but for the past month I've had zero. I'm now considering just starting a handyman service and ditching the idea of a career in tech entirely.
