    Hello Lee, Welcome to CF:biggrin

    as for the CV I would put the qualifications of your IT at the top, after all most employers have to look at 20 - 80 application forms. This takes a lot of time, time which they don't have, so they tend to scan read, looking for those important key requirements.

    Secondary, I would put more emphasis on your work experience, such as team work, motivation and your experience in PC's

    Have you ever built a PC for someone? If so put it on your CV.
    This counts as work experience. Put yourself in the employers shoes and ask why should I employ this person what makes this CV stand out from the rest?

    Good Luck:biggrin
