    :D Got the call today. Start 26th very happy. Taken almost two years to get in from commencing A+ studies to now. I was very depressed about the whole not getting work thing about a month ago and was about to give up but persevered. Thanks for the support provided by all you lovely people and special mention to GBL. Stick with it. If you want it it'll happen eventually. I read your thread and it really resonated with where I was little over a week ago. Chin up dude you'll do it

    Thanks everyone

    Now the beginning of my I.T. career:biggrin

    Oh and of the three interviews this was the one I wanted (its not the one at the recruitment consultants to those who remember)

    Lovely old job

    Always nice to hear some good news.

    That recruitment consultancy one sounded grim tbh mate - I think you're well clear of it. Seemed to me like you would have walked into an office full of the kind of twats that warmr was talking about in this thread

    Add to that the fact that IT recruiters are 95% scumbags anyway and you dodged a bullet!
