    I am near completion of my level 2 diploma for IT practitioners and level 3 advanced diploma for IT professionals, as well as my level 2 itq and very much considering continuing onto and HND in college in September, just wondering if should be focusing my attempts to get part time employment to help build experience in another sector apart from IT support. i say this because not many trainee or junior job around unless you have MS certification or a degree. Any advice and direction in what to do and where to look would be appreciated

    Try and get a customer service role, whether it just be in retail or anything(Assuming you cant find a job within IT). Customer service skills will help a great deal in support and helpdesk jobs. The great thing about IT is that most skills from other sectors can be carried over and used just as well in IT :biggrin

    You could also try looking some volunteer work, I'm sure there's plenty of places that will need some of your skills(to build up some experience).

    I would suggest going for the HND and try and find a part time job in a help desk role. If you can manage it I would also say try and get your A+ and N+ too.
