    Hi all,

    I thought it was about time I said something after reading this forum for a while.

    I've been in NZ nine years this week, I'm originally from Stockport.

    I stumbled into IT quite by accident after taking on an application support job for a medical software company as I was desperate for a job after leaving uni (the BA in screen studies hasn't done me much good but I had great time doing it). Anyways, whilst I was there I decided to upskill myself and started reading up on the A+ and N+ books (I will sit the exams someday too).

    After dealing with some of the techs that called into our helpdesk I though "I can do that" so this time last year I took on two part time jobs to gain some more experience, one was casual desktop support for a large international company and the other was doing IT support for a couple of local primary schools, at the same time I was doing my MCSA at a training provider in the evenings.

    Which leads me to where I am today, working for a telco helpdesk bored out of my nut and looking for a new job. I've already had one interview for a Junior Systems Admin role last friday and they have asked me back this thursday for a second interview and technical assessment. So, fingers crossed...

    I do want to finish my MCSA as soon as though since I'm not using any of those skills in my current role I haven't really had the motivation.

    Cheers,

    Billy.
