In this troubling economy, and after graduating from college, I have found myself trying to find a new job to no avail. Preferably one that deals with working with technology. Writing about, working with, fixing, developing technology are all things I'm interested in.
I know all this seems real vague, but I'm really just trying to find out more information about jobs in this line of work. What types of jobs someone who visits a site like Tested.com would find interesting? Are there more than just IT work?
I suppose I'm just trying to broaden my scope of thinking when it comes to jobs that deal mostly with tech.
If you don't mind me asking, what degree did you graduate with?
Technology is only half of IT - there is so much more to technology. Technology encompasses all things we love so that if there's something in particular you like (be it product or idea), there's probably technology involved. I think you should try and figure out specifics when it comes to technology. Technology is so broad, so that when you say you want to work with technology, you really have the whole world at hand. What part of technology interests you? Think of a phone for example - break it down a bit into hardware design (PCB design, form factor design, fabrication, verification) and software design (OS, UI designers, application developers) to carrier (Network and Wireless layout, IT (support, reliability))...the list goes on.
Needless to say, it's possible you don't have to narrow down so much. Journalist such as Will and Norm have the unique experience of covering all technology. However, as far as I know, such jobs are unfortunately difficult to get into and find, and I'm not sure what other types of jobs cover all technology aside from journalism. I know at Microsoft and Google, there are ecosystem product managers, which might be close to covering a spread of technology, but I can't speak too much about such positions having never experienced them myself.
You could try your hand at freelance writing ;)
If you're a humanities grad there's been a lot of talk recently about how in demand you are in the tech world. There's a great post on Read, Write, Now about why humanities grads should be looking to the tech industry for employment.
To echo @Blackmoore, what's your degree in?

What are you interested in? The awesome thing about Tested is that they have everything from camera technology to gaming to how to build a third person camera rig, etc.
Also, what's your definition of "just IT work"? I think a couple years ago this had a certain connotation but in the same way that the term "gamer" has changed from the early 80s to today, I think "IT work" has changed as well.
