    Hey guys,
    I am nearing the end of my A+ study so I am wondering should I go it alone or try to find some work.

    I am currently the "IT Guy" but the company main focus isnt really focused on Computers. So I am finding I am being passed on jobs that arn't really what I was there to do and not really IT related.

    Have any of you guys started up on your own and have you got any tips for someone else thinking about going it alone?

    ahh you've found out that other people think that "if it's got a plug on it, then it must be IT" :dry

    Will do no harm at all to start looking around at the market right now, Alisdair - word is it's on the up anyway.

    To be honest, unlikely that A+ on it's own will get you that job (though never say never). I'd say make sure you get the first cert under your belt, then maximise your CV to reflect the fact that you've gained it off your own back, and are currently putting that knowledge to use in your current postition.

    Hope that helps :)
