I’m new here and looking for some good advice. I have a graduate degree in Information Systems and trying to get entry in the IT field with no real world experience. I have not done internship and I’m not a young grad. I did graduate last summer and have been looking. I have done quite a bit of C++ programming and am also reasonably comfortable with VB and follow Java with my C++ knowledge. What would be a good way to market my skills?
Thanks

Well, first thing is to organize your skills, experience and motivation in a resume - making sure to have two resume types, one for online posting to job search applications and one for direct mailing/emailing. This organization may help you target your job/career search, and perhaps clarify whether there's any "industry" that you might want to focus on. Note that you'll probably end up focusing on 2 industries, 1 as a domain within the IT industry, and the other as the business focus of your efforts, i.e. IT applied to healthcare, retail, government whatever.

Thanks TNM, appreciate your advice. I do have an online resume and have received calls from recruiters who either express higher expectations for entry level or suggest that I undergo training in some of the newer languages. The more I talk to people in IT field, undergoing training or certification seems necessary.
I will get an opinion from the technicalresume.net and make the necessary changes to the resume.
Thanks once again.
