I'm an unemployed graduate (from Aberystwyth University with a 2:1 BSc (Hons) Computer Science degree) and freelance web developer.

Degree modules were mainly programming, but I'm a network guy so even though I did pretty well in the programming modules I hate it with a passion. My dissertation project is freely available under the Mozilla Public License v1.1 :)

Been doing freelance webdev for about 4 years, not ideal but good beer money! Trying to get myself into Linux sysadmin or general network admin/support - ideal would be Linux datacentre webserver stuffs but will have to go with the flow and see what I can find, can't afford to pick and choose in the job market these days!

Previous jobs: IT Tech Support for Colchester Sixth Form College and Call Centre Advisor for O2 Insure.

Remember what you're good at, dont dwell on what you're not... and if you've been working for the last 8 yrs then you cant have been doing much wrong!

Guess I should bring this thread back from the dead and update things slightly.

I now (subject to references/contracts) work for Autonomy as systems administrator - due to start on Monday 4th October in Green Park, London :D

Still unemployed but due to start at Worcester Tech in just over a week to get my CompTIA A+

See how I get on with that and what work opportunities are forthcoming as a result.

May look into doing the N+, Microsoft, CCNA, or whatever in the future.

What do i do? Pretty much anything that will pay the rent really!

However i had to stop the car mechanical and general building work as my back has totally given out on me (had surgery a few years ago but it didn't "take" so i'm currently full of painkillers and wearing a back support belt)

I do pc & laptop hardware/software repairs, however the hardware side of things is getting tricky as i'm suffering from carpel & cubital tunnel problems and the surgeon wants to slice me open four times, i made my excuses and left.
