    Unfortunately it is impossible to get any job at the moment, even as a volunteer bin-man.
    All we can do is try to keep our spirits up and keep applying for jobs.

    That's not how the country as a whole is going to get out of a recession, sitting around and waiting to be offered a job. The OP has a degree in Computing, they could start writing software, bung it on a website and away you go.

    Due to lack of experience, I had to have 12 or 13 interviews before I got my first role in IT and even that was part-time (although it's now full-time). And this was all before the credit crunch too! But there were definitely times where I never thought it would happen...

    I got my CV looked at by the Graduate service that one of our local unis was running at the time, which I think helped a little. And I would also recommend investigating the voluntary option further - I got a bit more experience by finding a position at a community centre on Home - iT4Communities. Best of luck mate

    Well guys and girls I got a chance I thought to meet the recruiter for a school ict tecy in Birmingham, well it turned out it was just a big 'visit the school' event and there was loads of people interested in the position, I think a good 30 odd people turned up for it in fact someone i worked with at uni went to it and he only wants the job cause it 'easy' and that really pissed me off with him (sorry for the language!!!) as I would love the chance to work there but I really doubt I'll get recalled for the interview due to poor grades and lack of experience :-(, but him saying he wants cause its 'easy' is really doing my nut in as some people like me getting a job like this would be better then winning 100 million on the lottery.
