    hi guys.....was reading a thread about job opportunities(or the lack of them!!) in and around Glasgow......
    there is a contact centre out in Airdrie called
    http://www.becogent.com/Templates/recruit.html
    ...this is where i broke into the it industry...
    NOW....i do have to say this......
    it is a contact centre, so although most of us are looking for that "hands on" role, i got my experience through this company,
    and it has led on to me securing a great job with a certain computer manufacturer that only sells on the web.....
    mmmm, i wonder who that is?!?!?

    anyway, i just thought that it may help anyone out there looking for that foot in the door that we all so need to start our careers.
    This is where i worked on the AOL project.....
    although i have learned that AOL have pulled their contract as it was outsource....but NTL, Tiscali and Telewest are based there...it is worth a shot...they are always looking for staff.
    all the best to you all

    I worked for AOhell for a few months before getting my new job,
    anyone wanting to get into IT has to understand that you may have to take a cut in pay to get the experience.....
    thats just my opinion ,
    look at the bigger picture, low pay = experience,
    experience = chance of getting a better job
    getting better job = better pay
    better pay= better lifestyle

    just stay focussed on what you really want and try to make it happen, thats what i did, im sure im not the only one :biggrin

    Just wanted to throw this out there that higher pay doesn't necessarily = a better life style. But it does help pay the bills.
