Career in the IT field?
« on: June 18, 2006, 11:27:51 AM »
Hi everybody, I just came across the following forum and read some VERY INTERESTING things about IT field.

http://techrepublic.com.com/5208-11181-0.html?forumID=6&threadID=189725&messageID=1950588

Would be nice to hear some further comments and opinions on that. As for myself, couldn't agree more than that.

I'm out, definitely.


Regards.

Who cares???....

I regret that fact that I spent 4 years studying my ass off to enter a career that is stressful, demands never-ending BORING study, and calls for ever-increasing sacrifices of personal time in return for a job that offers average pay and doubtful prospects for long-term employment!


Assuming this isn't just a troll ...

What does the guy expect to do as a job if not IT? Stacking shelves? ... Accounting? ....

I'm not really concerned that one guy doesn't want to be in IT.... Oh well ... another job for me! :)

He sounds like a recent grad...

As for his points.... none of them are really valid ... I know of people who are about 50 and haven't had eduaction for years and are still in IT ... employers prefer experience....

It seems that people think they will come out of college and start making $100k (US) or more.  The reality is that no matter what job one  starts with (in most cases), he/she will most likely have to put time and effort for a number of years to earn more.  

It also looks as if this guy thought the field of IT was going to be different than what he expected (unless I am inferring a bit too much by his statement)

No matter what job you go for....

You Always  have to go through the sh1t to get to the shine.

And so people should.

It makes you appreciate you higher position when you attain it and you know what the newbies are going through.
