    Let me introduce myself,had been working for a product developement company for 11 years when I decided I wanted out.IT/NETWORKS was chosen to be my next career so I started on a basic installation/maintenance course last year before moving onto the A+ which I have just passed.Unfortunately I was told at the beginning of December I would be losing my job at the end of January.So here I am ,unemployed and trying to find my first IT JOB .I have just started the N+ at Stockton Riverside college and I am also studying mcp 70-270 at home .Relevant jobs seem few and far between in my area , I've applied for four over the last 3 weeks and no replies of yet.Looking forward to communicating with you all.

    Mondos.

    Hello, that's a bummer being made redundant just before Xmas any time of the year is not good, but XMAS is worse. :(

    Just seen this thread so I thought I would reply.

    With regards to Job hunting which IT jobs sites have you tried?

    Redundancies had been quite common over the past couple of years thats why I went back to college last year, I needed a career change.
    Sites I've been using are Reed,workthing,cw jobs,monarch,jobsite,hays,sector 1,uk jobs network,total jobs,1 jo and planet recruit.

    I'm looking into volunteer work at the minute as entry level jobs in my area are few and far between as I've only applied for 4 in the last 3 weeks and had no replies.After reading about cv's on this site I think I know why(I only added my last job onto my previuos cv which is over 15 years old), so I spent all day today updating my cv and the sites with which I'm registered.I've added more to my list If anyones on the lookut for a job just get in contact (registered with e-cvs.net, cost me £14 but they've matched me up with 442 different recruitment consultants and they'll all get my cv).Anyway thanks for your post this place is really keeping me going at the moment.:thumbleft
