I've heard good things about InDesign. I never got to use it, though, because I graduated from high school before the graphic arts department switched from Quark.

congrats. it seems odd that they'd work you for six hours and then give you a trial week. is it a small company?
i just started using indesign last fall, but i love it. it seems like a cross between pagemaker, which i've used religiously for about twelve years, and quark, which i used when i laid out pages for a newspaper about ten years ago.
if i could find a design job that's comparable in salary to my teaching job, i'd probably switch. at least i wouldn't have to take my work home every day. or would i?

WOW! Got a new job already!!!!
CAn't believe it, I've only had three weeks off work, and only officially made redundant last Thursday. But I had a second interview yesterday (which lasted 6 hours) they were a bit cheeky I have to say, getting me to finish 3 jobs, including sending them to print. So they got 6 hours work for free. But I've got a week's trial starting Monday and all being well, I'll be employed as a full time designer! They use software that's new to me (InDesign) but I picked it up pretty well yesterday. I just can't believe it, this was the first job interview and I got it!!
If this works out, then I'm better off for being redundant, not only getting free courses off the govt, but having a little redundancy left over. Mind you, house repairs will suck that all away.
Time to celebrate now!
