    Hi,

    I have been keeping my eye out for jobs over the last 9-12 months. I am realistic and have been applying for jobs which I think I would at least get a "no" from! But only 2 people so far have bothered to reply saying thanks but no thanks :rolleyes:

    Today, someone phoned me and asked me why I wanted the job. I gave the guy quite a good answer (well, i thought so!) and he said he will be on touch. I asked if there was much interest which he said yes, but I was the only app so far that has any certs and genuinely interested in IT and progressive training. :biggrin
    Not going to count my chickens, but it is better than no reply!

    It's tough out there mate.
    Not only IT - everyone is having a hard time.
    Just remember that you're a good, honest bloke and you just need to get a foot in the door.
    If you persist, you will be victorious!

    "On-going Professional Development" is a great asset to have, firms and public services love this one beacause:
    * they don't have to cough up to train you as opposed to someone without the certs,
    * proves that you are interested in your field and
    * suggests that your capable of learning something!

    Keep going Boyce...you'll get your chance soon..."I have forseen it" as Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars would say! lol!!

    Thanks guys.
    Sacha- I love the "professional bit" :biggrin As you say employers like the thought of someone who is prepared to train and pay for themselves!
