    Hi guys,

    I've been sending my CV to quite a few agencies and every day I've been checking job websites, it was worth all the time I wasted as I might finally get my first IT job!

    The recruiter told me that a certain company (she did not say who) want to bring back in-house IT, they have been using outsourcing companies and they are not very happy with the service.

    I'm going to see the recruiter on Wednesday and we going to go over my skills and have a chat. She called me as I have Comptia and said that is required by the customer.

    I would love to get the job :-)

    I will update you guys on Wednesday.

    I'd love to tell you but I don't know. I've been looking for a job for 6 months now, sending my CV to every job advert seen in Bristol area. I've managed to secure 2 roll-out contracts but apparently they've found my CV on monster and positions weren't advertised. I apply for many jobs posted by agencies and I am getting some phonecalls back, sometimes asking me about the companies that contacted me (obvious reason), sometimes asking if I could tailor my CV more to the position. Apart from those 2 contracts I've been extremely unsuccessful in my jobseeking as I never landed an interview. :(

    Funny thing is I've applied for position in Cardiff only once and it was 3 months ago, but I am getting some calls telling me about positions in Cardiff which I've seen on job sites (so did you probably). But after stating that I could eventually drive to Cardiff :rolleyes: I never hear back.

    Good luck on your jobseeking
