    Hi guys,
    After starting to get a little down (and less active on CF) from 6 month's of CV sending and calling people and still no success (i'm talking only 1 face to face interview). I have finally got my first IT job.

    Its primarily 1st line help desk job but as its a small company I am already learning and getting exposure to more then just logging calls (ie i started on monday, today I was sent to client site to install network printer, and set up it up on all the users machines, stuff like that). So as I learn the ropes I will quickly get to help with 2nd line stuff as well.

    So far so good I'm really liking the career move, So happy I self studied (as in the interview they said that's something they liked as it showed I had the motivation to take it upon myself to find out the information I needed), So happy i hung in there.

    I haven't been around lately but big thank you to CF members who have helped including those who answered my quesitons directly as well as anyone who has helped anyone else as I have often found what i was looking for by just searching previous posts.

    Thanks guys
