Your college job site or bulletin board is a good medium to start.
Also, expand your LinkedIn network and look for the companies that fit your profile or seeking candidates.
Get ready to pass the employer's test/exams before you are granted an interview.
Seek referrals from your friends, professors, or LinkedIn connections if they know you.
There are many jobs in the high-tech fields that are unfilled today - expand your horizon to MA, VA, CA, NY, WA, and TX.

Andrea G recommends the following next steps:
Congratulations on finishing your degree in information technology. My first step would be to identify the kind of experience that you are looking for. Do you want a position in a certain location? Do you want to travel? Do you want an in-office position, a work from home, or a mix of both? Ask yourself these direct kind of questions to see what you are looking for in a job.
It's also helpful to create a LinkedIn (if you do not already have one) and search for open entry level jobs for information technology. That will give you an idea of what is available and what kind of jobs align with your degree. If you find some positions that interest you, feel free to look at the company's LinkedIn and see which workers are currently in that position. You could send them a short message to express your interest and perhaps ask to have a chat to gain more information about the role.
Best of luck!
Here are some opportunities:
- Get an internship.
- Volunteer to help companies with their projects.
According to me, you should explore about niche technologies like Cloud Computing, AI/ML, Blockchain, etc.. Also about Cloud Providers and their services such as AWS, Azure, GCP, etc.. "Because, Practical knowledge is more important then theoretical knowledge".
Search for each of the technologies and understand "Your Interest (Important)" in technology and after that you may search for the course of that particular technology on Udemy, Coursera etc.. kinds of websites/Applications to get subscription for the course.
Meanwhile, Explore job opportunities or internship on LinkedIn(Jobs search area) or Company's job career portal.
(Important) Create your profile on LinkedIn and update it everyday, also start connecting with the IT professional, discuss about the opportunities if they have or share your skill sets and ask them for the references.

Congratulations on finishing your degree! One of the best ways to gain experience is getting an internship! This will allow you to have hands on activity for your major and allow you to develop new skills while polishing your current ones. A great way to start is setting up your LinkedIn and building connections, joining groups, and overall getting involved. Through this, you can narrow down your searches to be within the area, look for entry level jobs or internships, pick between remote or on-site, and select locations you desire. A short job description will be displayed along with contact information if you have any questions as well. Something important with job search is to stay active and update it consistently! If you are waiting for acceptance of what you have applied to, it would be great to consider volunteering or working on personal projects to help develop skills to try to stay ahead of the game.
Best of luck to you!
I suggest you can consider below :
1. Internship - The Technology Corporate may have intern opportunities that posting on their website or college career office. You can keep an eye on it.
2. Explore any freelance opportunities
3. Graduate Program - Similar to the internship, the large corporates may offer graduate programs for fresh graduates. They may post this on their career portal or school career office.
4. If you have any corporates that you have interest on, you can send an email together with you cv to explore the opportunities.
Hope this helps! Good Luck!
