CV advice, and general Job searching advice
I've worked in a school in Warickshire since April last year, but I'm looking for something closer to home (Leicester).
I really enjoy working here as (from a technical POV) it is a vanilla (2003/2008 servers) XP network, exchange is run inhouse, and we keep most of the work in house (cabling is done by us, web design was done by me, etc).
Am I likely to find similar working conditions, elsewhere?
Having been checking the sites (LCC, thisisleicestershire, all the school sites) weekly, I've noticed a distinct lack of movement (one job came and went)... when compared to other counties I've had a look at.
Any know of any reason for this? Also how is BSF effecting the IT support jobs in the area, as I've noticed a few schools have moved premises or been closed (Fullhurst?)?
I've just finished updating my CV, but it was my CV from when I went to University. I built a really nice template back then (I hope) for it but it has a non/term time contact details, In the interest of keeping things looking neat I changed these to the same contact details.
Would it be a good idea to rejig it to only be one set of contact details, even if it makes the template slightly odd?
Also I've made a number of recognised improvements to the network (implementing OS software, instead of expensive commericial products, redesigning site etc) is it a good idea to list these (the list is one side of A4)? or just say something like "over my time at Ashlawn I have made a number of key improvements, and would be happy to go into more detail at interview"
