Hey, why did Lindaland change from .net to .com? My web browser kept saying the website moved when I clicked on the old bookmark but when I searched you guys it's still here but under .com?

HOW DOES ONE KNOW WHAT THEY WANT TO DO WITH THEIR LIFE AT MY AGE?!?!?!?!?

I know for sure that I'm starting to doubt accounting, and I'm slightly leaning from business and towards teaching. I REALLY just wish I could teach abroad for a living yano? I *think* that if I'm purely honest with myself and even in assessing my personality and characteristics as a person, it seems like a better fit for me than accounting. But I feel like if I do that and something happens, what if I have a degree that leaves me with nothing else to fall back on?

It's so easy to tell someone to do what they "love" but why is it so hard to find it?


Do you have any advice Randall?

My advice is to go to college, and as you take classes, you will discover what you want to do. It can be difficult to know now, because you don't currently have the added info you will receive in college.

We are also dot net and dot org.

Take your pre-requisites. In a year or two, you'll figure it out.

Do you have any advice Randall?


Have the same problems as you.

I think that people are a bit dramatic when it comes to career, and if you get a degree in a subjject you like and dont find work in it, you can still find a job.

Doing something simple such as a software QA course can get you a job in good conditions, good income and an advancment path, and all that without a degree!
We have a lot of biology majors and even doctors who do thzt becuse the biology field here is a wreck and most people dont find jobs.

I used to think that il be a psychologist and found myself somewhat lacking the skills needed to be one (even though i have the brains for it) and now im thinking about different directions.

Being a system admin in the army i could open up to a whole career path and see if a job in computers can suit me (for you it might be a risky thing since its time and money, while for me its actually a good way to pass my service)

Also, foind myself interested in the forensics field and genetics, and might learn that too, if i will find system admin (izing) to be too uninteresting for me.

The world is bigger than we think, and as of now most people dont live in poverty even though that at the time degrees werent very needed (i know its different today, but you can get a degree anytime)

Currtly working at a "bottom pole" job, i can see quite a lot of jobs that have fairly decent incomes and work that is not hard (to do or get) and i see that people can find themselves and get ahed in life even if they dont have some engineering or business degree.

Hope i helped

I think you're right, there are a lot of jobs, well thousands of jobs out there, that people have absolutely no idea about. Hmmm, I do think that younger people don't really have, access to any kind of information regarding jobs/careers or work in general. There are the typical things but not a lot comprehensively really.

This gives me an idea for a book to write, although it may end up being a compendium since there are literally thousands of jobs out there.

I agree with you also that getting ahead in life is down to the person, not a degree. I have an Engineering degree, but I am not working in Engineering. Just goes to show, degrees aren't what everyone thinks they are. I'm still thinking/searching for a job I would ultimately like to end up in.

dont want to advertise, but the site that has the most decent information about careers is O.NET which is a career database containing a lot of information.

what engineering degree did you get, and why?

Advertise away, Mechanical Engineering, with a final year focus on Control dynamics and Thermodynamics. I didn't really know what I wanted to do, so I picked a degree that I had a solid foundation in, maths, physics and problem solving skills, and one that would be worth the investment. Mechanical here, is quite general, we cover bits of everything, hydro and fluid dyanmics, thermo, control, civil and structural, aeronautical etc. Maths and statistics, as well as business and project management. My final year I was part of a group that looked into and worked on a project for the Royal Navy. Alas, I was not enticed by any engineering graduate jobs, and I don't think engineering is necessarily my calling. Of course there are so many niches, I don't know about them all. So you never know.

How about you?
