    I just came across these forums whilst looking for some generic list of queries and problems that people get at 1st line help desk support. I have been trying to get into IT now for about three months and i have an interview tomorrow for a position with a well known bank at 1st line help desk. I am really excited about the job and i have been doing a little brushing up on things over the net. This looks like a good resource and community so wish me luck for tomorrow and i hope to get to know some of you and get some great help and support too.

    Thanks

    Hi well i passed the job interview but they froze recruitment and i got another sales job, did that for a month and then i got an email offering me the it job so i started on Monday. All very very basic support with a knowledge base to use in case you don't know the fix. Guess we all have to start somewhere.

    So the plan is save up some money move out go to Russia for a wedding then save up for some books teach my self and get some certificates sorted so i can start applying for 2nd line.

    Right so i have been working now for Lloyds Banking Group since March and things have been going well just though i would update here because i will post in the normal forums from now on. At the moment i am looking to move somewhere else for better pay and using different systems to build up my experience so anyone looking to get into IT do what i did. Find somewhere that doesn't offer the greatest pay but gives you the opportunity to do overtime and build your experience from there then get certified as you go along.
