    Just a bit too far for me ... but an interesting prospect at a very good school. Definitely one for those who also have a good track record for music / media.

    I have applied. Don't Apply, Don't Get. If I am not successful then so be it, but I have almost ALL of the qualifications they are after, as well as my current role encompasses a lot of what is asked for already. Wish me luck!

    I won't mince words but it is a painful wrench. If folk are looking to go down that route you need to steel yourself into the reality that you are not going to be the fountain of all technical knowledge, that everytime you get your hands dirty yourself you are interfering with the systems / processes you are trying to set up.

    In most fields people have to make a step into management to get more money. It happens in health, police, army, education ... and there is always that nagging doubt in the back of your mind about whether you are worthy enough anymore.

    If you have the nack for organising things, for problem solving of any type (never mind just technical) and are a people person ... then you will have less trouble stepping into management.

    This doesn't mean you can't do little projects ... but always remember you job, first and foremost is a manager and leader.

    If and when you get a new job, thats leaves a space for someone to step into your shoes (not that I know where you work).
    John - One hell of a commute too work haha
