OT: UK Only - How to obtain a Job at PC World as a Repair Technician

I am a qualified MCDST but have never worked in the IT industry although I
am currently employed. I am also currently studying for my A+ certification
and hope to complete this by the end of June. I had hoped that MCDST would
have been the beginning of a new career but in this overcrowded profession
my lack of real world experience hasn't helped in my search for employment
and I am still looking.
I would be interested in working for PC World as a repair technician and had
hoped to find information on their website concerning the entry requirements
and how to apply but I couldn't find any. If there is anyone on this
newsgroup who works for PC World I would be glad for any information that
you can give.
Thanks.
Robert

Robert,
I can't offer any advice re PCW, sorry. Have a look at the job sites
http://www.cwjobs.co.uk/ and http://www.jobsite.co.uk as they do have entry
level positions advertised on there from time to time. Another possible
avenue might be to approach the local independent support companies (ie
those who advertise in the local paper) and while most tend to be one man
bands, one of them might be looking to take on a trainee if only for evening
work (so you can keep your current job). Some of them do most of their work
in the evening as that is when most people are at home!
Good luck.
Dave.
