I was a data analyst at my former job and I've been unemployed since Nov. 2019. I don't think data analytics is for me but unfortunately it's the only technical experience I have on my resume. I've tried to obtain A+ certification but I failed twice and never tried again. I'm not a strong test taker. I second guess myself all the time.
I'm interested in cloud networking. The job market has been brutal. I've been "ghosted" by recruiters and/or I don't receive a response from my cold emails. I receive rejection emails almost every week from job applications. Job hunting can be hard on your mental and I'm on the edge of having a breakdown.
My question is how do I persuade recruiters/potential employers to give me a chance as a entry level helpdesk technician without certifications?
