    I've just finished uni, I've got a degree in politics and have just got a job, quite crap pay, as an administrator in a bank.

    Can anybody suggest a good evening course (one evening a week, couple of hours) that would look good on a cv, help me to get a better job.

    I've looked in my local newspaper and there's quite a few:

    Administration NVQ
    CLAIT
    ECDL
    ILM certificate in team leading
    And loads more, no nothing about any of them!

    I'm not bothered whether it involves computing or not. All that I ask is that its what employers want, its no more than 3 hours per week, it don't cost a fortune, and it isn't too demanding considering I'll be working full-time.

    Any advice gratefully appreciated. Being a graduate is overrated, don't seem to be many good jobs about.

    well, TBH, if you're vaguely computer literate i should think you could easily just enter yourself for CLAIT (i did it at about 13) or ECDL & pass.

    depends what sort of job you want.. more administration? specialisation in banking? in which case check the competences of the sorts of jobs you want or skills & target those.. does your company do any in house training? in which case, they'll probably be free for you & you may even get T & S, so exploit that!
