    I'm going into a career that is not one for the money.

    Although if I ever manage to become a senior think tank analyst then that would pay quite well.

    You mean Nazis. And it was a spelling mistake, not grammar. How irritating am I being on a scale of 1 to 10?

    People who learn kitchen fitting makes more money than someone sitting in front of a computer so is gas technician, plumber or electrician. Someone came the other day to fix ac, took him 20 min and charged 100 pounds.
    Problem is no expenses, you have to buy your own equipment, run your own van, save for your own pension. Also you have to deal with instability/work drying up and I imagine credit is hard to get when self-employed. On the other hand you can hide a bit from the taxman and you are getting the true value of your labour rather than a salary (charity) from the company management.

    It's risky and unpredictable.

    This guy wants to fit kitchen or carpentry, he isn't going to get £100k a year from that anyway. I can see the point if you want to be an engineer, but otherwise it is pointless.





    I am well aware of the investment, I am currently at uni. With an estimated debt upon leaving of about £40k, however I cannot easily become a chartered surveyor without this qualification so it is a necessary evil. Although I do love Uni more than anything.
    The supposed "debt" bears no resemblance to what you will actually pay back, it's more or less a graduate tax just capped in terms of total contribution (the principal+interest) and/or time (20/25 years following graduation).

      why why why! why does nothing fun exist I dont want to sit behind a computer all my life and act like a snob. I would learn a trade but its to hard to get into and tbh trades such as carpentry are dying off, I wouldn't mind building things like kitchen fitting but the pay is terrible... is there no balance? is it either a boring high paid job or a semi enjoyable job which is piss poor pay.

      Well you see the way the world works is if its enjoyable lots of people want to do it, and they are willing to do it for less money. It then becomes a 'race to the bottom' in terms!s of wages.

      Because if it was fun, then people would be willing to do it for free, which rather undercuts your ability to make a career out of it.

      thus: all paid work must be at least slightly boring, although some jobs are less boring than others and everyone finds different things boring.

      Dentistry? Its a 'trade/skill' which requires a lot of hands on work. Your self employed, autonomous hours, plenty of room for specialisation, academically challenging and very well paid. In terms of 'snobby', its pretty snobby unfortunately lol.

      You should be upset with whoever it was who taught you basic spelling. I bet your Polish is top notch though.
