    Hi all,

    Thanks to suggestions from this forum I am currently going through the Web Development and Software Development beginner’s lessons on MSDN to see which area I might prefer a career in.

    Unfortunately, although I am computer proficient and have a pretty good understanding of IT and rudimentary programming skills I do not have any real experience to speak of.

    Bearing in mind I would ultimately like to move in to Web Development/Software Development, is it worth getting an entry level support job as a first step in to the IT world, or should I be looking at junior programming jobs?

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    Look for any IT entry job. Once you are in that role you can spread your wings. 8)

    I started in frontline support, then moved into a role where i learnt vbscripting for my job. I pestered them until I got a secondment to the apps development team. Once there I gained a bit of experience, and was able to keep the ball rolling when i returned to my normal job. From there, im now in a F/T Development role.

    In short, yes. get any IT job first. worry about specifics as you rack up it experience.
