Hi I want to go into a career in some i.t role but I do have reservations because of my C.P and being judged but like most disabled people I'm fed up of being on a low wage and not enjoying the life I deserve. Working at Tesco presently and I'm not feeling the love from them anymore. Any advice on how to get into it.

    hi @putter218 welcome to scope, I suppose the obvious question is do you have the relevant qualifications to work in I.T ? If so with 1.1 million vacancies across all sectors now is a good time to seek a change, if not then are you willing to study?
