    Got my first IT job but its only a 4 day contract job :( . Been contracted to support users on the rollout of a new Siemens phones, all i will be doing is floor walking when the phones go live supporting the user on how to access and use the new phone system. Had a training day today on the new phones and i have read the horror stories about IT staff on this board, but even i was shocked today i was the only one that was not a IT Professional and some of those IT Professionals had trouble getting there heads round a Mobility (Hot Desk) phones to me is was just like having a roaming profile for a computer just that there are only certain phones you can sign in on, some of those IT pro took a lot of explaining what it was :blink


    The only question i have is how i should put this on my CV

    Company A - Recruit Agency
    Company B - The company doing the work
    Company C - Where the work is being done

    Should i put Company A or B as the company I'm working for and under bullet marks contracted to work on Company C contract. Also what would you put as position IT Support/Floor Walker/Trainer

    Thanks for any help

    This is exactly the sort of work I used to build my CV for IT. I'd get a day job here, a weekend job here, a recurring job some other place, usually all Ethernet or Desktop rollouts. I know a full-time, permanent job is desirable, but as someone reminded me today, at least it's work.

    To try and answer your CV questions, here's how I list temp work on my CV:

    TEKSystems/Micron Technologies May 2006 to March 2007
    Technical Writer/SharePoint Site Administrator

    I put the contract agency first and then the company where I actually did the work. The dates and titles are obvious. In my case, temp jobs last months (or in the case of the current job, possibly for years), but you can apply the same format to a job that lasts just a few days. One job all by itself may not seem like much, but they add up. Each one also carries a unique set of circumstances and experiences, so the variety can sometimes help make you look quite knowledgeable.

    Good luck.
