I'm sure I'll get roasted for this, but I say this for your own benefit...
You must learn to write properly.
I know this just the VZi forum and nobody speaks the King's English save for the royals and dandies. My English isn't perfect either, but I have to do a lot of writing during my day job. Being able to present your ideas clearly to another party is crucial. This goes for a doctor, engineer, gardener, or career criminal.
It saves time. It prevents errors.
It presents you in a better light for folks that only know you by what you've written.
The job market today is extremely poor. This means it is also competitive. When presented with a list of candidates and CVs, those with poor communication skills may automatically sent to the circular file.
For better or worse, first impressions count for a lot.
In person, you don't get second chances.
However, in writing, you can have all the time in the world to put yourself together. Take advantage of that opportunity. It takes only a few minutes to proofread what you've written. That's few minutes that can help propel you to what ever your dreams may be.
Then again maybe I'm just old and out of line.
I've read (and re-read) your post. It sounds like you have a good, base skill set. It looks like you've got the enthusiasm and the hunger to learn more as well.
When you have all of this going for you it would be a shame to sell yourself short on paper.
Good luck, lad. I don't mean any of this in offence and I hope you find employment in something you love.
