hi gals and guys, only just joined but couldnt find the introduction section so i really do hope its ok to put on here.

my name is robert and i am from halifax uk.

i passed a couple of exams about 3 years ago but because i couldnt get a job due to no experience, i gave up. stupid i know but i couldnt find any other way to get a job so this time im not going to give up!

i was thinking about doing free work but i dont really know if that is what it is called so hopefully someone will come along and correct me, doing free work will give me the experience i need.

i am currently studying 70-410 as i really want to be an mcse.

well i think i have covered the basics about me

    Welcome and good luck. Landing a first job can be hard. There is a really good section on the forums for help with your resume and interviewing. Take a look through there. It wouldn't hurt to post a copy of your resume with all the personal info removed, and get some good honest feed back on it.

    With MCSA windows 7(70-680 & 70-685) you should be able to land your first IT job.

    Good luck on your job search, and good luck on the 70-410

    thank you for the welcome.

    i knew i forgot to add something, the 2 exams that i passed are 70-680 amd 70-685 but i have applied so many jobs but none came back to me because i dont have any experience.

    when you say resume, do you mean my CV?

    Are you getting interviews? or are you applying and not getting any call backs? Will help pin point where the issue may lie.

    thank you for the reply

    i have been applying few jobs a day few years ago but nobody ever got back to me.

    i would like to post my cv on here but dont know how. i have made a thread on how to post so as soon as someone replies on that thread then i will know if its my cv or not.

    Welcome to TE! This is a fantastic community!

    I've also been studying for the 410 as well, hoping to schedule the test early August...

    Welcome to the forum. What sort of jobs are you applying for, it mightn't be ideal but maybe start on a help desk to get the experience and build from there.

    Good luck with the 410, I'm studying for that as well.

    It can indeed be tough getting your first job in IT. Have you also tried working in a computer shop e.g. fixing / upgrading computers clients bring in. It will give you more hands on experience, the addition of being able to say you deal with clients / customers on a daily basis. I did the computer store job for a few years then went into helpdesk roles.
