    Job Wanted In ICT

    Hi All,

    I am a young enthusiastic lad who would like to get into an ICT job, I have no qualifications as such ( I have 2 GCSEs in ICT ) but I am very experienced in Microsoft Windows Server 2003 & Microsoft Windows Server 2000 Domain environments. I am also apart of Microsoft Windows Server 2008 BETA testing program. I have been administering them for a few years now and i have picked up some experience. I know about many factors including:
    - Domain Environments including Domain Controllers
    - Group Policies
    - Active Directory
    - VPN
    - Microsoft Exchange Server
    - DNS
    - DHCP
    and many more.

    Although as you can see i have no qualifications as yet i am an experienced user and i know to job well :!: I can provide proof of this by references or some sort of test. I would like to get a job administering Microsoft Windows Server Domains. Some companies provide training I am more than willing to do this and I am prepared to learn.

    I live in the Rochdale, so preferably I would like a job here or in the surrounding towns.

    If you would like any more information, please don't hesitate to reply to this thread or send me a PM.

    Thank You

    Zak

    Am not sure, but I don't think anyone can legally take you on without going through the entire interview process with other candidates etc. so you are probably best looking at the jobs advertised as opposed to advertising yourself.

    Re: Job Wanted In ICT

    The only way i found to get into IT without qualifications was to do an NVQ apprentiship, but i was still lucky to get the job at the end of that.

    My advice would be to look for "junior tech" positions and then do a CCNA, MCSA, Network/A+ etc at a college on a night class, or even just studying on your own.

    TBH though if you are as good as you *sound* id just go straight in and enter myself for a MCSA and/or Network+ exam. If you pass then you will be one step closer to getting a good job, if not just go on the course.

    Re: Job Wanted In ICT

    i agree with _Bat_
    Im not sure either if any one can legally take you on without going through the entire interview process
    my advise is take your time and ask around and look at the jobs advertised
    and etc..

    good luck anyway

    I got all my experience mainly from reading MCSE books and setting up my own domain

    Re: Job Wanted In ICT

    If you are currently unemployed, you could ask round your local schools to see if anyone would be willing to take on a volunteer for a few hours a week - they'd need to get a CRB check done and may ask you to pay for that, but you'd be getting valuable experience which would look good on your CV when the right job does come up.
