    good luck

    keep your linked in up. Change status opentowork there.
    indeed, monster and careerbuilder are good ones.

    rest just keep applying, even if they are different state in usa. you can make up story ok to relocate. this is just for practice.

    lot of times with recruiters of it is about making a story, about why you are looking for change , what are looking for. actual interview is different.

    Hi OP,
    which place/country are you in ? it is very normal to be nervous for an interview or job searching. Even people with lot of experience get nervous speaking in front of others.
    Only with lot of experience interviewing helps overcome it. But its okay ..keep giving interveiws.
    Forget what recruiter said..ignore her.. there will be many more failurers, be ready for that. Ultimately you will land where you fit well. Trust me you do not want to me in place where people do not want you or they have doubts about you.
    Other thing -Some people know how to fake knowledge .. like in my personal experience, many men in IT field are too good in faking it as compare to women.
    In my case, if they ask me something, i do not have knowledge enough in that area, i lose confidence. Or I get tired with long interviews or need to go bathroom or hungry or suddenly off guard they start asking questions etc..because my focus is shattering. And people/interviewers have that face, you know not-so-warm face, it says- we are not going to take you, what do u think of yourself
    So be prepared and be ready to tackle such things.

    Op

    I didn't read all other response. Just my two cents. First don't waste time with recruiters. Apply from job websites like indeed.com monster.com or google with your skills and place. You can apply directly on websites of big companies in your area.

    Always sit straight and give eye contacts to all interviewers. Keep light smile and confidence on your face. Talk in clear voice. In beginning when they ask you about yourself mention that you are quick learner, you have "Can do" attitude, patience, hardworking etc. If you don't know answer tell clearly you don't know. If they ask you how would you resolve issues then have standard answers ready like google, co workers, customer support and so on. At the end of interview express clearly that you are interested in this position and you are willing to learn. Shake hands and appreciate for interviewers time. Good luck.
