I was laid off with hundreds of others about 14 months ago, and so far I've had no luck getting another network admin job. I'm willing and able to do other things in IT, but after so much time, I wonder whether I should just try something else. Still, it's technology that I really love. Would it be a mistake to give it all up? I believe this is a great time to be in the technology field, and well-qualified IT professionals are in high demand in many areas. Though each market is unique, overall tech-sector unemployment is lower than the national average, and with continued focus on innovation and enabling technology, that's unlikely to change soon. In any event, I would encourage you to follow your passion. Having a job you love leads to a better sense of balance, and to success in all areas of your life. Best wishes in your search.
