Hey,

My recommendation is to try applying as many helpdesk job as you possibly can within the industry you like. Create a CV and register to some of the job sites such as indeed and many others. Send 30+ applications a day if possible, don’t wait around for calls and replies…

Better companies with proper hiring procedure might reply, some don’t. Likely that most of the applications are not even getting read so don’t wait around, you’ll lose time.

Also, you should NEVER think that you’re are not good enough for a particular job, you are. There are so many reason they might not pick you, but has nothing to do with you in particular.

Also, create a LinkedIn account, and start to send requests for people working at recruitment companies. Message them saying you are looking for a job, in fact, they will probably find you automatically after you have an account for a while.

Thank you so much for the tips I’ll follow that. For the LinkedIn account how do I set that up? And what requests am I sending exactly…?

Create a profile on linkedin.com. It's like an "online CV". I'd start looking for recruitment agencies in your area OR the location you'd like to work. You can send the people work at these agencies "friend requests" with messages that you are looking for a job.

If you create a good linkedin profile with relevant information then those agents will find you eventually, but if you reach out it might be quicker. However, try the other option as well that I mentioned by sending applications.

You have been given masses of advice on the topic already, including specific links to graduate advice (Prospects) for IT support roles, job fairs, links to relevant job websites, using your Uni careers service, relevant voluntary work and free IT courses.

You graduated with an IT degree a year ago so should be ok to do this kind of internet search, familiar with LinkedIn, confident about registering on a website and finding out its purpose.
