Sorry that I'm hijacking this thread, but the irony is that I'd probably
be good at the desktop support positions, I just don't have the relevant
qualifications - experience yes, qualification no.
I'm currently trying to get the relevant LPI, but between my parents and
Linux Holding, it might be a while still. Don't get me wrong, I don't
blame either. My parents just want to be sure and Linux Holding is just
very busy at the moment.
I just want to say that there are people - if not talented people - out
there that do not have qualifications because of circumstance and/or
time, but do have the ability, skill and experience to do it. While on
the flip side I've seen a guy get an A+ qualification and score higher
than my one friend, but he changes RAM while the PC is STILL ON. This
person now has an qualification and job in IT - in which he gets alot of
people to replace their ram and motherboard (for obvious reasons).
Anyway, sorry for the hijacking and rant. Flame me if you must, but
somebody had to say it.
