    Afternoon everyone,

    Just saying hi..... I'll be looking for a lot of advice on these forums in the coming months.

    I'm looking to branch out into the I.T industry as it's been a hobby of mine since I was a kiddy back in the Spectrum 48k days ;)

    I've been in Sales & Marketing, Aircraft Flight Ops and related over the last 12 years, some of which involved a bit of I.T, but never actually involved in the "official" I.T industry I feel I was always destined for.

    I'm clued up on the basics (& a bit more) and build PCs for people I know etc, plus I've always been into everything I.T related, I just need to polish up on my networking skills. So, reading other posts on the forum, I think it might be an idea to get the entry-level qualifications under my belt (with the guidance of my best mate who's MCP/MCSE'd up to the eyeballs and in a Management level position within the I.T industry) but I see it may not be a good idea to get over-qualified on paper without having experience to back it up, correct?

    Any guidance would be massively appreciated, once I get my foot in the door, I'll be in the industry for life, I'm confident of that!

    Cheers all, looking forward to making new mates!

    Kev (off to update my profile so I don't look too much like a n00b!!1!)
