I am thinking about my future. I don't know what to become, and I was wondering if any of you could help me here.

My priorities for my furure job are:

1. Good working times, so that I can spend alot of time with my family
2. Well paid
3. The job is social

I don't care about anything else about such a job, or about what is required to get it.

So I would be very, very happy if you could come up with good suggestions here:)

low, underpaid, And being other peoples slave.

I am ready to be low, underpaid, and being other peoples slave, if I can eventually reach a job with the criteria I gave.

wake up sonny ! The world would have been a much better place to live in if everybody could do that. Unfortunately, nobody can guide you along the path that you wish to take. You are the only one to help yourself.

Well, then you could probably become almost anything, and just work your way up to CEO

thats not entirely true, there are lots of programming jobs out there that have pretty good hours and pay pretty well, (40-65000) now the social part, thats where things get tricky...

You could become someone who begs for money. Downtown at populated markets you could make a large sum of money and make it home before dinner. ;)

Only you can find out what you want to be. Review many jobs that contain the things that you may like, then try afew during your life, its an experience.

here ya go. Google Search (www.google.com)

but seriously, you choose what you want to be. Don't go into the job world with your requirements. those will follow. do what you love, what you truly want to do. it is all up to you.

alpha's right - don't play to those goals - those'll come in time. Find a job that has to do with your interests.

Your second point is turning your job in an opposite side of the others. There must be some tradeoff.

you don't even say what type of job you want. Given this is a programming website, I assume that's what you're interested in, but there's a lot of people on this site that want to be electrical engineers, or computer engineers, or osmething that has to do with computers but not programming.

social? Every job has at least some socialness in it, but computer jobs? well, um...Hmm..become a therapist if you want social

given you are looking for a computer job:

Its easy;

think of a job or(bussines) you would do for free.
then choose that as your career.because even if u dont make
lots of money at it,u are still a winner.
but most probably ,chances are that u make it big(because u do what u like to do).

be it be dogtraining, firefighting,social activist,cartoon graphist, medicine, programming.

speaking of programming.the fact that u are asking that question
of ,which career to choose?probably means that ,programming
is not it for u.

me i have been doing (for a few years)programming as a great hobby.because it makes me happy (not money).

programmingly speaking if u want to have a great social life
do this:

create your own world environment API (the way to mingle).
initialize all variables(individuals) = TRUE; unless proven

otherwise. use assert.h and utilize(getlasterror() often. make
your loved ones as type global boolean TRUE. and use
DeleteObject() fast to get rid of the bad bugs.

initialize ur class interface functions(dealing with people) public (open) and friend ,not private .(or better yet , just use C).


Dont mind me. i gote bad cold, with a 39 fever
