Amigakit jobs

Alright, do you know if there are any jobs available at amiga kit. There's no 'careers' page on there website. Also when you click on the jobs page on amiga future all of the text is in German which is useful. Cheers mate

I visited amigafuture.de and then clicked on Jobs. In the upper right corner it says : "Just write to Andreas Magerl if you are interested in a job or have any questions".
So I clicked on Kontakt and there you can see his address and his e-mail is Andreas at amigafuture dot de if I got that right.

Is that the correct page I visited?

Confusing thread.

Amigakit and Amiga Future are two different companies.

Unless your looking for jobs at both companies.

I also need to work for Amigakit, I'll tell you why. My wife is a huge fan of Manic Street Preachers, and she asks me EVERYDAY: "Oh please give up everything and move to Wales/Cardiff". If I remember correctly everything I ordered from Amigakit was sent just from Cardiff, so I could kill two birds with one stone I would be happy 'cause I love Amiga, and my wife even more

Stick out tongue Amigakit

I would like to work from home, online for amigakit.co.uk

Strengths: friendly, confident and enthusiastic
Weaknesses: none
Experience fixing amiga's: not much but I was hoping that you would teach me that as I'm a beginner.
Difficult customer: be calm, relaxed, friendly and tell him/her that problem will be solved as soon as possible
Why I want to work for amigakit: I have always been fascinated and loved amiga since I got my commodore amiga cd32 in Christmas 1993 with some amazing games like superfrog, emerald mines and cannon fodder. You'll probably laugh at this but my first amiga 1200 I got was from amigakit as the amiga magic pack. The diversity of items you sell such as hardware, software, games, magazines, music cd's and gifts appeals to me. Final reason: amiga is different
Salary to be happy with: minimum wage to begin with. Hopefully will increase as i get more experienced and knowledgeable about the electronics and programming involved to repair a machine and when I know more about the items that you stock.

Thank you for your time. Ted hughes

Before you submit your test review, be sure to double check your grammar, spelling and punctuation.

Haha Didn't check the text properly

I'm not suggesting anything, but as a writer for a magazine (like DDNI said), it's important to know grammar, words and so on Of course I wish fondpondforever all the best.
