    Try making a few versions of your CV. Only apply for 1st line / Service Desk at this point. Do volunteer work if you can. Good luck, Jim

    Is there any volunteer work that you could do that is IT related. Im graduating soon so ive started applying for jobs, but while ive been doing that ive been getting volunteer work at my uni, we have a massive upgrade of equipment in april, so ill be doing that.

    Whats your CV like, im sure theres a post on here in the employment and jobs section on how you can spruce up your CV. Also elaborate on your hobbies, ive started getting rid of the term socialising to actual specific hobbies like bike riding , walking etc or a team game like football. I do all these thing anyway but it shows your an active persone etc.

    Id seriously consider the volunteer work thing, its something to dao instead of just applying for jobs, which can be demoralising and tedious. It gives you the chance to put down that you are or have been doing IT related stuff, and also youll get a nice reference from the person your working with.

    Brush your CV
    Get Some Contact ( Network )
    Get some Voluntering under your belt

    Honestly getting the right contact can get you places .

    In some case it is not what you know it is who you know that matters:rolleyes:

    Keep looking and applying.
    Look and go for 1st line support, either telephone or remote assistance based. most of these kind of I.T positions are reasonably scripted and process guided so easy to pick up. Also most employers look for a good sounding in customer service and good telephone / speaking skills rather than technical.
    Once you have been doing that for 6 months you will have a much better understanding of the IT enviroment.
    Train up, study, check solutions to your previous unresolved calls, break your PC at home (fiddle with the registry or something) and then fix it. (no more Facebbok till you've fixed it :)
    Set your future expectations high but realistic. start off low and build up.
    IF your CV does not have much qualifications / experiance then emphasise the things you are great at at a personal level.
    And I agree with the above comments, try and get some voluntary IT projects to widen your knowledge and pump up that CV a bit.

    Good luck.
