    The entirety of IT is a vicious playground, it's possible, you'll just need to keep applying or entry level jobs

    Regards to going up to an Engineer, it's possible if you have the motivation for IT.

    It's possible. I got an IT position with no IT qualifications, although my background is in engineering. I just applied to a recruiter, my resume got looked at, had interview, and got the role.
