dear gentlemen, as you know, i hold you guys in high esteem, and i come to you this fine morning in need of some more pro-tips for my lil bro, whos beginning a journey of great nerdom and needs your guidance. he wanted me to ask you guys what he should major in in his IT course thing. he said he's narrowed it down to business, programming, or internetworking. is internetworking even a thing? whats the one thats most likely going to lead to mad cash money, bitches, and internet travel?

no so much an IT position but anyone know anyone who is a team organisers/receptionist/group assistant type person?

ideally suit a young chick (but no issues for a guy) wanting to do a bit more than answer phones and get coffee. person would be helping out with bids, formatting of techincal documents etc... as well as basically running the office. The company is pretty good with education and flexible. PM for more information.

Programming - Sitting at a desk writing code/designing software interfaces
Business - Getting paid to wear suits, attend important meetings on the other side of the world, having work pay for your meals, accommodation and flights and then putting in an expense claim for any additional expenses at the end of it. Usually you're out of touch with the plebs who do actual IT work though, and there's usually a lot of boring spreadsheets involved too.

You can be technical and do that stuff too - that comes from not being an interpersonal mong. Plenty of cube bound BAs to be found.

Get a tier 1 job kicking shit around, study some MS/Cisco certs on the weekends. He'll get relevant experience and saves spending 4 years getting a degree.

Gentlemen, today is the first day of the rest of my life. Well, the first day of my notice period at least I have a new job!

Finally, after 12 months of looking on and off and not being keen to leave a permanent role (no matter how shit) for a contract, I've landed something else that's permanent and that is leaps and bounds above what I'm currently doing. I'll be exposed to shit loads of new tech in my chosen niche at a global IT company earning a substantial amount more. It is absolutely perfect for where I need to be in my career right now, and opens a load of doors for where I want to go.

As a wise man once said:

BOO-FUCKING-YAH!

he better not post any more work posts, or he would show a degree of hypocrisy I've hirtherto suspected in him, but have not noticed due to highly evasive skills.

They got a QLD branch at all Ian? I'm in a pretty similar boat, in a stable and comfortable job, but not being challenged, and very limited in terms of career progression.

I had a meeting with a recruiter last night, went in because I'd shown interest in a couple of senior desktop support/sys admin jobs. They had a position service desk team lead which the story is their level 1 service desk team currently only resolves 50% of their calls upon first contact and gets alot of complaints etc. so they're basically looking for someone to setup and document polices and procedures, look at what they're doing wrong, look for key areas of improvement etc. Fair bit of ITIL stuff involved (in which I don't have alot of experience with)

Basically the guy said although it's not what I said I was looking for, but I'd probably be well suited to it, mainly because I have good communication skills, well presented and didn't look like a typical IT geek. Wasn't something I was typically looking for, but something I'm considering

Where can I find a QA/Software Testing type role with minimal experience required? Did a few courses and plenty of experience with UAT and rolling out new systems to plebs, but no degree.

Because of how much Ian's joy pained me I went and got my own awesome new job. I'll probably wait until I sign the contract on Monday before I celebrate too hard though.

I dedicate this post to Ian Wilson, and envy.
