    Hi there :D

    I have just started studying for the MCDST through ICS Home Learning.

    Currently don't work in IT but work with Windows XP every day!

    I have wanted to get into an IT job for a long time but family (and unsupportive partner - got rid of him) made it a bit difficult. But hey I'm doing it now (better late than never) and my work are paying for half of it - so that has to be a bonus.

    I am hoping that if (or more probably when) I come across a problem there might be someone out there who could give me some advice - and maybe one day I will be able to help someone else - I think that's the way it goes.

    I'm self-studying the MCDST at the moment, and about a month away from taking the first exam.

    Congrats on taking the first step on the road into IT :)

    Good luck, maybe A+ would have been a better foundation to start with?

    Welcome!

    Now that you've got the MCDST, get an entry-level IT job as soon as possible. I'd also recommend getting the A+ and Network+... but don't wait until you're certified to get the job... start looking NOW. :)

    Thanks for all the support. :D

    I have approached the IT dept in the company where I currently work and I have also updated my CV on Monster and S1Jobs so here's hoping.
