Will have a look, thanks. Heat. I find myself struggling to break into the web design jobs. Changed CV a billion times but never successful. I have done a maths degree and not interested in teaching full-time.

It's going to be even harder now sadly. My brother in law works for a large Google backed company specialising in backend tools for large e-commerce companies. They were 260 staff but have just reduced that to 80 with everything going on and are now talking about putting the company on hold for 12 months.

That's a shame.... a lot of people losing their jobs and mortgages are just waiting to be paid. Now if Google backed firms are letting people go, what chances do us novices have. Man it sucks lol. I will just keep working at it. I still practice MATLAB and Python mathematics so I don't forget.

just apply and keep applying, especially if you can apply directly without a middleman.
Also worth having a portfolio of the work you done to act as supporting documentation.
UPDATE : If you are interested in the course but not ready to start learning yet - remember to "enrol" on the course in order to get the free deal. Once enrolled, this sits in your profile for you to start whenever you are ready.

Yes, 100% and thanks. I have one I am working on now, just need to tweak it. It is a cooking forum as I like food. I am also doing code for a wildlife photo journal. So taking as many pics as possible. Once again, thank you amigo.
