    Well I've been applying for jobs, most of them found on websites (Jobsite, cwjobs ect) but have had no replies.
    I've been looking at 1st line support jobs and jobs like that but nearly all of the ones i've seen are asking for previous experience.
    Just have to wait for the right one i suppose.

    Hi & welcome to CF :)

    Don't give up, it took me about 5 years to get into the IT field (alot of no replies and rejection letters) and now I'm an IT Manager :)

    keep plugging away you will get there, CVs & Interviews are also skills you get better at over time. It is disheartening at first but keep at it, theres bucket loads of good info on these baords that will help you on your way as well.

    Thanks for the welcomes everyone.

    And yeah, I know it's gonna take me along time to get a job. So i better just get on with it and start applying.

    Would anyone recomend me study for another qualification while I'm waiting on a new job? I was thinking about taking the MCDST upgrade exam, 621 i think it is.
