Can anyone suggest a company...?

Can anyone suggest a company that is reputable and hires computer tech's for jobs ranging from contract to Full time but that also gives entry level (few certs or degrees) tech's a chance to prove their a fair wage.

The reason I ask is because just about every job I've found on the job posting sites ask for rediculous amounts of experience or certs and until I have my RHCE (hopefully no more than a couple of months), I'm finding it very difficult to get an actually computer job.

The sites I've been trying are careerbuilder, dice, flipdog, monster, hotjobs, manpowerprofesional, and Kellyservices. I could keep going but needless to say, I've been looking but haven't found much.

Any suggestions are appreciated,

Manpower, at least in my area sucks. I would keep hitting up dice at least. Shoot your resume out even if you don't think you are qualified. Most of the companies you will be applying to are usually agencies. It is good to get your name out there at least and they have jobs coming in all the time. So, even if you might not work out for this one they will have you on file for another one. You just have to be persistent with these people. Unfortunately there isn't just one good agency.

I agree with mindcry, keep sending your resume out.

Also, make a contact at the employment agencies that you applied to and follow up with them every 2-4 weeks, at least to check in and see if there are any new openings.

You could also apply to the companies that you think you might want to work at directly. Send your resume out to the HR departments of those companies.

As for the job boards (monster, dice etc), a lot of the postings for jobs are like a wish list of skills. I do not think that a company expects to find someone with all of the skills that they ask for. If you feel that you can do most of the things that the job posting is asking for then you should apply for the job.

Good Luck with your search...
