Are you graduating from high school, college, or university?

I know you probably don't need the help, as I hope success smiles upon you whatever direction you choose. However, I recommend you get a certification and an apprenticeship. You'd then have the trifecta of achieved, assigned, and acquired status. It improves your prospects dramatically. Having one without the others is a bummer. If you already have a unique skill, a specialization, and a trade, I see no reason why you shouldn't become a professional. Tools are easy enough to acquire with time.

@GabrielsThoughts:

Thanks for the advice and I agree. I'm going to be graduating from my college and I'm already in the middle of an internship (I guess that counts as an apprentiship).

@CPD:

Apprenticeship is about learning a trade. An Internship is about networking, any skills you acquire, posses, or learn are just icing on the cake.

Although, I suppose one pays for the other. If your network, achievement, or experience isn't valued by an employer you can use the content of the water doesn't change argument. If they try and land you with "hubris," recognize that the person you're dealing with has a childish sense of justice and probably believes in the "Just World Hypothesis" or "retributive justice." As such they are protected by a fugue of ignorance, and your best bet would be to convince or motivate them to see your presence as an opportunity. Then again, lacking a verifiable work history and social media profile, I am considered an entry level cifer no matter what, so probably not as difficult for you.
