Looking for advice or help.

I just immigrated here and had some experience with fixing hardware, software, setting up networks and satellites when I was in my home country.

I have a bachelor degree in accounting but it isn't recognized by US education system so that means I have to use my HS diploma as my only education in US, I'm attending WGU (BS IT Network design and management) have CIW Associates Cert, A+ Cert, and almost done with Network+ Cert.

So my question is can I easily get a job in the IT field or should I get more certs first? If so around how much could I start out making? I'm living right now in northeast MO small city, willing to relocate. where is the best place to start out?

Any advice is welcome.

    Try to get helpdesk or try at a local pc shop.
    No longer work in IT. Play around with stuff sometimes still and fix stuff for friends and relatives.

    Yeah, your best bet is to get a foot in the door somewhere like a small PC shop or HD. From there, building on experience will get you further.

    Around my area, a small PC shop tech or HD tech would bring anywhere from $20k to $31k starting out.
