    Hi all, I have been applying for IT jobs for a year now, woke up this morning to the normal email on my phone. Job offer it basically stated they will ring me later but I rang them instead, and then rang again after was promised a call back and was told that theres a company in Farnborough that would like an immediate start tomorrow. I was shocked and she said is that something you can do. (I would have to get a train untill I can afford a car) I said yes and they said they will get back to me for a telephone interview. Its a helpdesk role first line I believe. Hopefully it all goes alright and I will keep you all posted. Just a thread to give some inspiration to all those that are really struggling to get into IT. Never give up :biggrin.

    Just and update, was told yesterday by the manager of the company that he might have another role coming up within his business that would suit me, and that there were more experienced applicants for the helpdesk role. I'm just going to keep plugging away and see how it goes, really enjoying studying this A+ at the moment. Would this give me the edge against others when completed?

    Having a cert is better then not having one so yes I think it will, although I lost count of the amount of interviews I had and they had never heard of the A+ or even Comptia now MS and Cisco that was another story!

    ok then mate, I'm sure most employers must be aware of it because its stated in most of the job descriptions. Anyway shudn't be long till I've got it so hopefully that gives me the edge against other potential candidates :D
