My First Job

vodafone

So in the space of 3 years I had gone from sectioned, diagnosed with BPD, hostel and college. I achieved distinctions in all my courses and got to a level 4 in computing and systems development (HNC). I had moved to Manchester and moved in with Vick and it was time to get to work! So I had a clear career path in IT, I really wanted to be an IT professional so I started applying for work. At this time I didn’t know how I would cope with the stress of work and how I would get up and go daily taking my meds morning and night but I really wanted to work and get back to ‘normal’ so I did start applying and I eventually got my opportunity with Vodafone. The role was support role (and not so technical) but it was work and it was a start. If i’m honest I hated it really, it wasn’t what I imagined my professional career in IT to be and I was disappointing. The salary was pretty poor and I was a little bit fed up here. This being said I soldiered on and give my all day in day out.
