    It must be my lucky day/week/year. After 5 years of doing permanent nights in a manual unskilled nonIT job, with a huge interest and determination to get into IT, yesterday I did an interview for an IT support role for a well known european IT company and today got offered the job!

    I have been tryin for a year, but didnt seem to get anywhere (with just A+ and Network+ under my belt), but after recently passing my first Microsoft cert. in XP Pro, the offers started coming in a lot more frequently and finally I have done it!! :biggrin:biggrin:biggrin:biggrin

    To anyone in the same position...Don't give up, keep trying and eventually the determination will show through!


    Heres to a new life.

    Well done. If you're that determined it shouldn't take long before you have an excellent CV - do as much "hands on" as you possibly can, as certs are great, but you need the knowledge / experience to back it all up!!
