    Congratulations!

    I'm really jealous to be honest, I've not changed jobs for 5 years now and I miss the excitement of starting a new position in a new company.

    I've got a load of job searches setup and I'm receiving emails daily but I'm not seeing many vacancies.

    The ones I do see want the earth in the way of experience plus certs but aren't willing to pay for it. It really is a "buyer's market" at the moment when it comes to the job market.

    It would be very interesting to hear more details about your job, if only to get some tips about how to go about getting a new job in this difficult market.

    Anyway, hope it all goes well for you!

    It's a promotion to a Senior Systems Engineer which means I will be primarily field based. Where as before I was primarily office based unless working on projects.

    The new job involves project work, server migrations/installations, router/firewall installations/migrations, Citrix, VMware, and your normal MS Stuff, Exchange 2003/2007/2010, Server 2000/2003/2008 etc.

    We are also the last line of support if none of our other techs can fix an issues.

    It's going to be challenging, but I'm looking forward to it.

    Sounds great mate, good to get some field work under your belt and possibly dare I say good practice should you go contracting (get used to the travel).
