Have you worked in any profession in recent years? do you have any formal qualifications in any field?
Its a long story, but I actually have a HND in Telematics / Telecommunications. I did the 3 yr course in 1 year with Nortel networks, and was promised a job at the end of it. Well the bottom fell out of telecoms at the time, and needless to say.....there were no jobs offered.................BUT I do have a HND !
