    OK i just got this job passed to me through our jobclub site at the UNI. Id like peopls opinions about it if thats ok

    IT Support Assistant
    Working for a firm in the Wirral. They are looking for a student with good all round IT and web skills to: solve the problems arising from their software, web searches for specific items/topics including property, adding to existing training Powerpoint as needed, loading/uninstalling software and general IT training of the staff. Working for 8 to 10 hours per week (either one full day or to half days to suit and can be worked round lectures) at £6.55 per hour.

    Im going to go for it as i think it would be great experience. Im just not sure how to approach it as they dont mention anything about training and for what they want am i right in thinking that the money isnt that great??

    I would say go for it, the money might not be brilliant but it will look great on your CV and will help you in the long term.

    Grab that job with both hands mate, some people have to resort to volunteering to get some experience, so any paying job would be an excellent start!

    Getting your start in IT is the hardest part of IT. Get it so you can get that elusive "experience" that everyone talks about and employers require!
