The US tech industry has very brutal competition for jobs. In my opinion, it is a waste of time to try to try finding tech employment without any significant accomplishments - accomplishments that prove you are better than the competition that is trying take the same job opining away from you.
The US games industry has brutal competition for jobs. Most of the US tech industry has the opposite problem, there are not enough skilled people to fill the roles (even junior roles). Some parts of the US tech industry are in a worldwide talent drought, where there simply aren't enough people in the world to meet the demand, even if you could get visas for foreign workers.
