So I have been employed as a Junior Systems Administrator for 4 years now (it is my first job in IT) after being fresh out of doing an HND at college. I work for a small company and 4 of us within our department. However 2 got made redundant recently due to new path the company is going down (not having to do much on-site work). Anyway I am the only one in my own department who looks after the company IT internally.
- What stage in my career in IT when i will no longer be classed as a Junior? My contract says i am a junior. I have not had any form of letter saying i am not a junior. Should I approach to HR or my boss and ask?
- I have never had any training within the company related to my job role, I have either Googled or asked anyone whos in the office and not out on site. But now its only me and my boss who should train me, but he is never in the office.
I now get stuck of thinking what things to do without anyone saying that have a problem.
I love being in the company as there are great people there. But if I am a junior and no one is mentoring me should I look for a new company to work for? If so does anyone know any recruitment agency's in the UK what focus on IT apart from Linkedin? I know the obvious answer to all this but i want to see what others think.
