Have you contacted local contracting companies? Some have tests that can help place you even if you’ve never worked in the field before. Good luck!

Honestly, I've never thought of that, can you explain to me what is a contracting company, is it something like a consulting company?

They are job placement companies. Big companies may use them for hiring, sometimes to find contractors, sometimes to find employees.

For example here’s one:

teksystems.com/it-jobs/en-US/searc...

The people who place people are called recruiters. You could find the recruiters in your area on LinkedIn and send them a message and friend request.

If there are none in your area maybe a remote job would be better:

weworkremotely.com/categories/remo...

Cheers
