    op,

    you can try getting some certification and then try for IT jobs again. I am not sure if you will get interview calls. But no harm in trying. If you are in India, refresh your skills and try attending walk-in interviews. See how the response is. I had a TL who took almost 5 years break to have 2 kids and then was able to find a job in IT.

    Hi OP,
    Where are u located? If US, what is your visa status and also what are your interests?
    If you might have to go through some agencies and if you plan to be in IT/Development or even Testing, you might have to take courses and certifications. Now-a-days, It has become very difficult to find jobs and with IT changing so fast, everyone is asking latest technologies. It may not be easy but better to try than stressing at home.
    Also If you do not care about job nature, you can try Admin/HR side (as someone suggested above).
