First set up a profile on LinkedIn if not already on there, see https://www.linkedin.com/in/richard-filippi/
Then use LinkedIn to search for particular positions, such as Cyber security etc. Fidelity and SAS as well as many other firms have operations in Raleigh NC. I am not familiar with your area of Greensboro, although my nephew Mathew Trifan is an MD at a hospital there.
Connect with me if you like on LinkedIn as I have over 2500 contacts at various IT and Financial firms, that I can introduce you to if they are at a company you are targeting. It is important to have someone on the inside to show your resume to a hiring manager. When you submit your resume online it is reviewed by a computer to see if you have certain key words. Which is a reason to tweak your resume for each position.

I actually don’t care much about how much I make, I am thinking I want to go in to IT project management, but don’t have a strong background in PM as of yet. Below is the experience I have listed on my resume for this position.

I guess with my education I am wanting to know what options seem like they might be a good fit for me.

I have a strong love for both IT and PM, so I feel this is the position that I would be best suited for, but I also and wondering what other positions would incorporate both. I am also currently working on SSGB. I just feel the six sigma is helpful in PM processes.

Very solid education and certifications, Rose.
Questions:
1) What experience do you have that complements the education?
2) What do you want to do? I see hands on technical, technical project management, and process improvement. After a 40-year career, I have found that truly enjoying what you do and who you do it with is more important than trying to squeeze every dollar out of position.
