    Hi everyone,

    I have been fascinated by computers since I first laid eyes on one but my career path to date has somehow avoided anything directly IT based. I started a part time Computing degree a couple of years ago with the ultimate aim of changing direction but unfortunately had to put it on hold before completion. I have also learned a lot from tinkering at home, a blown PSU earlier this year turned into a rewarding voyage of discovery.

    I have now spotted my dream job and it cites the MCDST Cert as desirable so I am nibbling away at a training video so I can at least look knowledgeable about what it entails, but I appreciate that there is no substitute for experience so I thought I would have a look around for a suitable community so here I am - seek and ye shall find (thank you Google!). I might not have any qualifications on paper yet, but I can more than make up for that in enthusiasm. Whether I can convince anyone else of that remailns to be seen :)

    I’m looking forward to exploring this community and hope I can also contribute somewhere along the way.

    If you're looking for experience, go out and get you an entry-level IT job and start building that experience. Continue to work towards the MCDST. I'd also highly recommend the A+ and Network+ certifications.
