    Are you applying to any smaller companies? I generally recommend people avoid the mega carriers at all costs. What part of NJ are you in? North, South or middle?

    Recruiters will tell you regional or local when you talk to them. "All the way to Washington state". They lie. You just have to start somewhere.
