    I'm thinking Technical architect/IT systems architect. It involves teamwork and close communication with a client.
    I have good social skills and would prefer a job that takes advantage of this, I don't wanna be sat in front of pc screen all day haha
    Any job that involves human interaction or management along with a comp sci degree will pay relatively well as many people that do comp sci degrees aren't too sociable(is the stereotype lol)
    As with any job, you will get paid most for the thing you're good at, so if you'er amazing at programming then you will quickly rise and maybe get head-hunted for your skills.

    Engineering is also a really good industry for cash, if i was better at maths and physic i would have gone for social/mechanical engineering lol.
    If you enjoy your work, you never work a day of your life
    In terms of getting bare cash tho, its best to just play to your strengths and you will eventually climb up in the industry, that's the most important thing i think

    Software development is reasonably well paid, but it very much depends on your skill set and fluctuates over the years. For example, there is a mini boom in ASP / .net / web app development jobs at the moment but I doubt it will be a long term thing and the next new thing will come along. If you get caught short, you will end up stranded. Certainly the most lucrative end of the developer world is banking, but the skill requirements are very high as it is all low latency, high speed throughput stuff so a strong academic background or understanding is required. But if you want to earn £800 a day, that is the place to aim. Not for me though.

    Good luck!
