Have you contacted any recruiters, specifically for the IT industry, and asked them for recommendations as far as how to write your resume and what jobs to apply for?
Although I have over 16 years experience in the IT industry as a Web Developer - I am always needing to get more experience in technologies I’ve not used before to remain competitive. For example, I have never done anything in ReactJS.
I kind of got my start in the IT industry by first working as Help Desk / Phone Support for various companies. Phone work with customers discussing computer or software problems is a great way to start your career and will begin to give you experience in the IT industry. No, it won’t be what you want to do for the rest of your life, but get a few years experience doing that and then apply for a programming job. Something to think about.
Back then, several of the companies I worked for did not have any software running to record each phone call. Since I was interested in computer programming but had no experience - I thought, “Well, I am already on the phones taking calls. I am sure my manager would love to be able to gather statistics on our calls. Maybe he would be interested in letting me write a simple application to allow for data entry and then save that information to a .CSV file.” So - I put together a mock-up of the app and my idea and presented it to my manager. Bless his heart, he liked the idea and actually provided me time each day to work on the call log application. Once it was ready about 20 people at my call center were using the application (yes, including myself!). Can you imagine how cool that was? To be sitting beside people using MY application that I wrote. MY idea???
That was like 20 years ago. But, it gave me my start.
No matter what your profession, you can take a few hours at home each night working on some sort of project that will allow you to showcase your skills in development.
You can participate in git hub projects. I found a bug in Microsoft’s Visual Studio Code editor a few months ago that became part of their bug fix 'sprint" and is now part of the product. Just a cosmetic bug, nothing grandiose. But the point is it shows participation in the IT community as a volunteer (much like this site does). This is key in accumulating some experience you can begin to add to your resume.
