I am a 50 year old ex Bulider who had accident 5 years ago preventing me from continuing my trade.
About 3 years ago someone gave me an old PC and since then I have been to college and gained my A+, CCNA, and some other Web design courses. At the moment I have enrolled and intend to do my MCSA.
The only experience I have is shadowing an administrator (in one of the colleges)for 6 months, Where I learned Active directory, Exhange, ghosting etc. I also worked voluntary for a charity organisation installing and configuring hardware, while awaiting the MCSA course
As I have never worked in the IT industry before, apart from the minuscule experience above, I have to know if anyone would be willing to take me on, or basically would my CV be paper planed into the bin cos of my age.
I am genuinely interested and entusiastic about learning this side of IT and any genuine advice, encouragement, or even better...a job at the end of my MCSA course.........would be greatly appreciated.
Incidently I live in East London
