    Thank you
    Its okay
    Are you looking to have a regular 9 to 5 life with a ok/good salary of 26/29k with not many long days and a good social/family life?

    if you're then its for you tbh, if you go into finance for e.g it will be very bad, you get paid 50k but you work 18 hour days and more (7 days a week) with no social life

    so it depends on what person you're also x

    O dont have them you will have to use the search function. They were quite long posts written for people considering a career. It was an eye opener.
