Obviously your first priority will not be in saving for the future.
Someone in your situation will make looking for a good job be his highest
priority, as you are no doubt doing.

All I can suggest is that if your current strategy is not working, then
you should try something else. Maybe you could take a class to expand
your skill set, or even consider moving to another location where jobs
might be easier to find.

I think I.T. is a fairly broad field with a number of sub-specialties.
You might do some research and try to identify areas within I.T. where
employment prospects are stronger.
