    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,
    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.
