    I´ll soon be back in the UK after 3 years in Spain and 5 in Ireland. I have eight years previous technical experience in electronics(mobile phone repair) beginning as an engineer and progressing to Technical Manager in charge of 50+ engineers and responsible for the workshop, training and ISO accreditation etc.

    I´m looking to move into IT but since checking this site, my planned method of using a company such as Apprenta or Computeach seems to be a big mistake in terms of time and money.

    Realistically, what chance do you think a 33 year old newly qualified MCSE(for example) has in getting an entry level position in IT?

    Thanks,

    Andy.

    Hi Andy.

    33 is good, I assume you have some experience in some kind of employment.
    MCSE is good, nothing wrong with that as long as you earn it fair and square.
    Entry level job is good. No better place to start.

    Good luck.
