    hey guys,

    I'm near completing a foundation degree in computer technology, I was hoping this qualification would be enough to find me my first heldesk role but no luck so far.

    I was looking at what I can do if I cant find a job, I'm not keen on the idea of a full degree as I dont think I could stick it out for another 3 years, and I came across this top up degree

    http://search.ucas.com/cgi-bin/hsru...-4q5x/HAHTpage/search.HsDetails.run?n=1002464 -- if it works

    But my question is would it be a waste in time or would an employer see a foundation degree and a 1.5year top-up equal to a full degree?

    I'm just looking for an entry level position in IT support, nothing over ambitious

    My advice, based purely on this statement above would be to look at the Comptia A+ and N+ certifications, in my opinion it's a better idea to get that at this stage of your IT career. There is nothing stopping you from topping up later on down the line either via the OU or by going back to Uni if you so wish.
    Certifications: CNA | CNE | CCNA | MCP | MCP+I | MCSE NT4 | MCSA 2003 | Security+ | MCSA:S 2003 | MCSE:S 2003 | MCTS:SCCM 2007 | MCTS:Win 7 | MCITP:EDA7 | MCITP:SA | MCITP:EA | MCTS:Hyper-V | VCP 4 | ITIL v3 Foundation | VCP 5 DCV | VCP 5 Cloud | VCP6 NV | VCP6 DCV | VCAP 5.5 DCA
    WIP: VCP6-CMA, VCAP-DCD and Linux + (and possibly VCIX-NV).
