I hate people gloating how easy their life. They have no understanding of the real world.
No matter what anyone says it will not change the fact that I will remain unemployed for the rest of my life. Positive thinking and self help books change nothing, you are either employed or unemployed.
I do not see anyone gloating. If anything you are getting examples of people that started out with nothing encouraging you to do better, people who put in the hard yards and got to where they are now. Is life easy now? Fuck yes, why shouldn't it be? worked hard to get there in the first place. I and a few other in here through their stories, was clear that they sacrificed their younger days to get a head and make something of their life.
Commerce is not a useless degree, all my wife's friends have one and they all been working for many years now. The issue is your expectations are too high. Even with a degree you start at the bottom of the food chain. Even me as an engineer, I had to listen to field techs and be abused for the first couple years and made fun of like you know nothing. It is part of growing up and learning.
Law does not have better prospect in Australia because there is too many of them. You spend 7 years doing the shit job, then you can sit the bar and then maybe you get to be a lawyer, Then another 10 years later and you may be an important lawyer. I seen lawyers who were junior lawyers in Australia for 10 years, then they moved to saw Singapore and 4 years later are head of legal of some company.
The point I am making, you need to do your research and be prepared to move to get the work you trained to do. No one likes to move, yes it is hard leaving your friends and comfort behind. But in the long run if it bring you rewards that you could never get where you were then sacrifices have to be made. I moved, didn't want to move, but you know what at the end of that dark tunnel there was a bright light and I would never move back now, even if I was offered equal pay.
