Can I get an Entry Level Job in InformationTechnology or any computer field?

I have been working with computers for sometime now. (really since my freshman year in college). I have a certificate in Information Technology but, I havent been able to get a job in that field. I have helped other people with their computers and also I always upgrade and crashed (which i learned on just doing that on my computer). I do not have the "experience" of actually working for any computer company. I basically taught myself how to use and keep a computer up and running. I also took computer classes microsoft office, installed some hardware (hard drive and floppy) installed software, and installed operating systems. I do not know how to program a computer. but, I know how to make sure that its running smoothly. alot of people say I should go into I.T. but in Chicago, IL, alot of jobs are not really trying to train somebody to fix a computer. I have the skills to do but can not find a job to go with it. do I need to go back to school for more training? or what?
