When companies are looking at people, often the tiebreaker is whether or not they’re certified in whatever it the skill is that they’re supposed to know.

I know that worked with a young man I coached in the DC area, a recent grad, no experience. He got himself certified in his skill and was able to find a tech job. You can do much the same thing. Get yourself certified in an area of interest and expertise and move from there.
