  • High Quads: give me career advice please!

    Hi everyone, I'm a 23 -year-old C4/5 quad currently halfway through Information Systems degree by distance, part-time. The more I get into it though the more I realise I don't want to be doing/won't be physically able to do the sort of jobs that it leads to, and there is also not much chance of those jobs being available in my town of 25,000 people. I figure I'm going about it the wrong way, I should identify just what sort of jobs are out there realistically, pick one that sounds good, then do the study/training to get there.

    So, anyone have any suggestions? What have other people of a similar level as me managed to do? I want to be doing something, and eventually pay back at least some of the tax dollars that I use up, and I really would like to think I could get a job in the future that I had to actually use my brain for.

    Tank , any interest in something like Accounting or Law ? are you trying to avoid a career that involves mostly computer work [such as accounting ]? there are some education jobs that might work , though with the size of your town i doubt there is any opportunities . perhaps training that might lead to administration in your local council or a similar organization.
    thank you ,

    every day i wake up is a good one .

      I'm after something that is pretty much solely computer work I guess, because that's about all I can do anyway. I was thinking about maybe something in the financial services, accounting could be an option. Ideally I would want to work behind the scenes, because I'm pretty useless on the phone and wouldn't be able to deal directly with customers well.
      And I think there is no way I would pass a law degree, I've seen what my friends do and I just wouldn't have the motivation to do the work as my heart wouldn't be it.

          I'm really to young to make any decisive ideas about what I want to do with my life. I WAS planning to be a pro soccer player [img]/forum/images/smilies/rolleyes.gif[/img]
          I'm looking at a variety of options for school, so I would just say find something you're passionate about. Don't get discouraged.
