I  have recently been made redundant from a job in IT/Insurance and I have been unable to find work in this field so I am looking for a career change.

I have been looking at the job profiles on this site and I have come up with a short list of jobs to go for and I am trying to investigate each of them.

The jobs I am looking at are:

Catering - Starting as a kitchen Assistant but working my way up with more experience.
IT - Computer Repairs
Hotel Porter

I have not got much experience in any of these and none of them are similar but I would be grateful if anyone has got any advice about getting work in any of these fields or advice about retraining.

I know for catering you need a Food & Hygiene certificate to be able to work and I have checked with my local college and they are not doing a course until September. I have seen courses online for about 25 and I was wondering if they are acceptable if I did one of those.

Thanks for any advice.

I think for a food and hygiene course it's best to wait until September to do it with your local college, that way you can be certain that it's legitimate and you have direct contact with people who can help you, not only with the course but also with possible job options. Also, they're often offer a part-time option so you can work and do your course at the same time. However, if the internet option is more convenient, why not phone a local hotel and ask if they could recommend a particular course, or advise you on the best route to take. Hope that helps!

I too was made redundant from the insurance industry as an admin assistant and am totally struggling to find something in the same area, so i guess re skiiling or going to college is the next possible step if the recruitment agency i've just signed upto can't perform a miracle! the only other option is to move does anyone know any hot spots for admin work?
