Now I am MCDST I am getting interviews not no job offers

Now I am MCDST (and A+) I am getting interviews not none have turned into
job offers. I have read loads about the dos and don'ts of interviews but
still seem to be doing something wrong. It probably doesn't help that I am
not really an extrovert.
What I think I need is coaching in interview technique, almost 'acting' so
that I can get past this hurdle. I am based in the UK - London area.
I will be glad of any advise anyone can offer.
Thank you.

Do you have any prior experience? Unfortunately I have found that certs
alone don't get you jobs, real world experience does and certs just help. I
know the only way i was able to get a foot in the door was when I was working
in the warehouse for a company and an entry level help desk position became
available in the company and the company liked to promote within and the
other IT guys decided to give me a shot (plus they could pay me a lot less
with no experience.). Now I have 5 years experience and a few certs and it
really isn't that hard to land a job.

Hi M,

I honestly think that my acting training was a huge boon to my career, and
that goes not only for my IT career... I will bet you though that somewhere
in your region there is a ToastMaster`s club... start going to meetings, and
see yourself blossom.

Don`t forget: MCDST is not really supporting desktops, it is supporting
PEOPLE on desktops. Taking acting might help, also TM and Public Speaking.

Good luck!
