    Hey,

    Some of you might know that i've been working my a*s off over the past three or four years training, going on courses, studying, taking exams and generally working very hard....

    Anyway i've been putting this work in in order to secure a job with a large IT Services company where i have room for cross training and even promotion. Generally a faster paced business environment....

    Well on Monday i was offered the role as a "Technical Specialist" with a large IT Services Company around 25 minutes from home :D.

    I've also managed to secure a 12K rise as well as a host of additional benefits! I'm so pleased all of my hard work has finally paid off!

    I'm just waiting for the contracts to go through over the next week so as early as next Friday i could be handing in my notice for my current role....! Oh yes! :biggrin

    Lovely old job!

    I'm considering moving on soon as well - right after I get my CISSP. That's if I pass this bloody CEH of course!

    I might consider looking at working in reseller support - the guys I deal with from our reseller are really good technically, earn a decent wage and get to play with all the latest stuff as soon as it's released.
