    As an ex computer headhunter, that sounds absolutely fine to me. Also mention enthusiasm - could talk about being keen that everyone gets the best out of the computer systems in the place - remembering of course that computers are only a tool for teaching, not the be all and end all of it!!!

    Re: Job Interview Tips & Advice

    If anyone wants to know I will go through what happened

    - First of all we had a guided tour to all parts of the school and meet the staff we has shown the key areas that relate to ICT.

    - Then we had a written test, the questions were:
    - How would you prioritise your workload.
    - What are the good & points about you that relate to ICT
    - Someone gives you a call the following error message is displayed on their screen "The Domain Is Unenviable" What do you do?
    - There is a yellow marker over a device in device manager what is this?
    - What is WEP & WPA? How are they related.

    - Then the particle test. The test was to add a computer to the Domain. As soon as a put on the computer there was the beeping noise indicating there was a problem with the RAM. I fixed the problem with the RAM. Then I needed to change the computer name then I rebooted. The IP address wasn't set to DHCP so I needed the change that. Then add it to the Domain.

    - Then there was an interview at the end they ask questions such as:
    - What can you give to the school.
    - What do you know how will it benefit students.
    - Are you willing to work overtime?
    - Are you willing to get your hands dirty?
