I want to be Morrissey but its not going to happen.

I want to be a technology consultant advising clients on how to use the latest technology within their organisation in an accessible way, I realise this will take ages but when I have masters and plenty of work experience it will probably happen.

So I do too, but its quite difficult to get into, you need education, experience, and a good portfolio before you can get a good job out of it.

Portfolios are more for web design jobs though, web development is a totaly different job, that is more concerned with back end programming.

Irrespective as to my career aspirations: I should rather like to hunt chavs, in an amateur capacity. Hopefully, my pastime wouldn't warrant the same allegations of 'gratuitous cruelty' as have lately contributed to a ban on fox-hunting; notwithstanding, of course, that any social benefits would be far more immediately and ostensibly apparent. Once general consensus esteems the value inherent in such a service, perhaps I could make a professional run of it; however, failing that, I'd be quite content to plump for a litigious role.

Yes, well; one can always dream.

The best thing to do is to get training within a company, then team up with some friends. Or even work for yourself.

Been there done that, they all seem to want degrees, plus its good to have a more general computing background because the market is always changing, thats the big problem with training, they tend to lack theory, its all about how to the job now, not how to the job in 2010.

Its not just about being able to program in ASP.NET and being able to write HTML/CSS.

You can do it by yourself but the market is very volitle, you woud have to be very lucky to get a steady income from it. If I was to setup my own business it would not be web development even though this my area of expertise.

Working for myself is what I'm thinking of doing if I can't find a job in an existing company. Regarding what AT82 said about having to be very lucky to earn a steady income from it, I have to say that I'm not really a materialistic person, and so it won't bother me too much, as long as I'm doing a job which I enjoy.

You spend a significant proportion of your life at work, so I think it makes sense to do something you enjoy, even though it may be difficult at first.
