Need Help

Hi guys iv just done a diploma in international bussiness. Iv got one big decision to decide on and want to know from peoples previous experience. I can either go to qut study a 5 year course (3yrs bussines 2yrs law) or a straight 3yrs bussiness. Or i can work for a mechanic fitting mufflers and stuff. It would be full time work probly about $500 a week and i could finally spend the money and do up a really nice car. At the same time i wonder if uni is worth it like will i get a good job ? I want a house and i know ill never be able to get one if i go to uni thats if uni gives me a job. I dunno what to do... help !

Re: Need Help

tough call. speaking from experience, one of the very few regrets i have is that i didnt finish my degree sooner. instead, i let uni to work in a bank. a young guy and a few $$$ in his pocket are soon seperated. especially by the beer goblins.

i dont want to sound disrespctful, but fitting mufflers for $500 a week is not good money and offers a very limited future. you may not get a job in your chosen degree immediately, but once you have done the entry level work, you will have some experience and a foot in the door. it took me 3 years after my degree was complete to work in my field, but i love what i do.

but, ultimately it is your decision. there are a thousand things you want to do, and limited $$$ and time, and whatever you chose, you will miss out on something else. good luck

You wash your car like it was your firstborn child, you tend to its needs like it was your own body, you protect it like it's your family, then you drive it like you stole it.
