How many of you got a job from EE? Should I choose another career?

    I just wonder, does anyone have any statistics on the percentage of people that come out of university with a good electrical engineering job? This is the situation I've been going through for years about finding a job in EE, and so far I've been told that I would need the degree in order to get a job like those on indeed. Like "Electrical Design Engineer". But I wonder, will I get the job once I complete the degree?

    I just wonder, if I can switch to something else, should I? Like computer science, that seems quite appealing to me, I enjoy anything around computers, electronics and electrics. I have been spending time recently learning web development, but still not getting put forward for any jobs.

    I found the problem with EE is that the employers ask for skills that I really don't understand how you get them without getting the job. People can't really say I haven't tried to land any electrical job because I have, and have many letters in return to prove it.
