    Hiya,

    I'm in West Yorks. I worked as a support engineer for Toshiba for nearly 24 years then 4 years at another large Japanese IT company. Due to off shoring and general cost cutting i'll probably be down the road around April time. Do you have any info for the position in Leeds? I've never worked in education as most of my experience is in large retail organisations but i'm on the look out for new opportunities.

    Went for the meet and greet today. It was delayed due to the people I was meeting being busy.

    It went well and I'm hopeful it amounts to something. Just waiting now to find out if a job interview with the Deputy Head and IT Line Manager arises.

    All this aside, I've now come to the conclusion my current job is not for me. So if any of you guys know of anywhere I can get an opportunity in South Essex, please let me know.

    Special thanks to Crazyal for his assistance, your blurb was spot on and for you guys that gave me the heads up for child safety and prioritising jobs to allow teachers to teach. That went down well with today's meeting!

    Be confident, you know you're stuff so tell it like it is.

    Look them in the eye, but don't stare as that's creepy apparently .

    I dunno how old you are but I'm 36 and interviewed last year for the first time in about 20 years, I was petrified, I ended up just sticking to facts I knew and it went well.

    Don't talk about stuff you don't know and dress formally.

    Thanks to Ashley

    Don't know if you watch Impractical Jokers but you could get some good pointers from this :

    Really!? Interview questions...

    What does DHCP stand for?

    What is the main function of Active Directory and it's essential counterparts name?

    Come on. FFS! I thought there would be a bit more thought gone into those questions.

    On the plus side though, I think the interview went well, if I get the job, I've got to go on a new 'Safeguarding' scheme before I start the role... But I'm ready.

    Fingers crossed!

    Sounds like the network manager is shit if that's the best he could come up with.

    good Luck sounds like you could walk in to his role

    Yup I got that one too, response went something along the lines of "dynam... it doesn't matter as long as I know what it does, how it works and how to configure it who cares what the acronym stands for."

    Sorry fellas, I thought I'd answered this!

    I went for the original interview and managed to get short listed from 8 down to the last 2, but the job was offered to the other applicant.
    I was told though, the Network Manager will be retiring soon and I'll be informed once the position becomes available.

    Also applied for a number of other positions since, but nothing back from those yet.

    Still looking at the moment.
