This is a great point you make. Now if only my best mate still had his
IT job....
I've heard on the grapevine that Schools are looking for IT personal,
due to the government giving them lots of money for the 1 computer per
2 students thing. So my first avenu is going to be applying at
schools. I have a friend already in one school, but no vacancies
there. My resume does look good, I try and rely on a short but
interesting cover letter rather than my resume, to highlight my IT
skills experience, so I'll keep trying, and maybe enrol in a course to
get at least one qualification to boot.
