What is the chance of me getting hired if I call a mom-and-pop roadside computer repair shop and ask for a job? I'm nineteen, never worked a day in my life, in college for an A.S. in Network Systems, and have an A+ and MTA cert.

More often than not they'll ask how good you can sell things rather than whether or not you're qualified to repair computers.
But yeah, you would have decent chances provided you can show that you have the skill.
Seriously, I got a job working in L1 tech support making $15/hr for EVGA when I was 17. Still in high school, only ever worked at a grocery store, and no certs.
I'm so tired of seeing people on this board who need a job yet are terrified of asking for one.
I have gotten many jobs this way, especially for waiting tables. You literally just walk in (wearing something nice) and ask for management.
Politely introduce yourself and say you would like to work there. If they ask for a resume, tell them you have one handy. *have a resume ready.
Yes you will get some no's, but after a handful of these you should get a yes.
After going to one or two places, you get in the groove.
Baller tier is not asking for a job, but offering services.
>Hey mom and pop shop, I'm anon. I know the interwebs and walking around seeing if I could give anyone a hand. No? That's cool. Here's by business card, if something comes up, I'd be happy to take a look at it.
