    Hi @braincrash, a pleasure to have you on board. Two excellent growth areas of IT. Have you got any IT Certs at the moment? I love Portugal, a beautiful country

    I've study CEH and CHFI, but never took the exam :S

    thank you Portugal is indeed a very beautiful country but we could be at a better place for the tech industry, the salaries are too low for locals.

    Oh excellent. As long as you have the knowledge that's the main thing. It does help the old CV to put a few modern certs on tho I think. Possibly get you past some recruiters filtering processes.

    Bless you mate I had a few friends there who worked for Atos. Like you say, its all on a smaller scale isn't it even when its a big company. Would you move abroad do you think? Or possibly work remote from Portugal

    Yup working remotely should be my goal, I can have the good life of Portugal, but with a stable income that allows me to have a normal life.

    To pass the recruiters today is not an easy task, they just look for the cert name, they don't really care if you are actually good and have the knowledge, it's is sad because I'm pretty sure a lot of techs out there have the knowledge but for some reason, they just didn't do the cert.

    atos.net/pt-pt/portugal, if it's this one, it's what I was referring to, they Atos saw potential in Portugal and started a Hub there, I guess.

    I have a good buddy who still works for Atos Portugal if you want to speak to someone. I got all of my experience from Atos and travelled all over europe with them, a really good company.

    I agree, its not fair but the recruiters need a way to turn 500 CVs into 50 so they often say, bin anyone without a certain cert or degree. It's one of the main reasons why I think certification is still very important in certain roles. Developers, not so much unless you fancy a challenge but infrastructure related, they hold a lot of weight still I'd say
