hi, everybody. need some advice here, feeling quite lost.
i finished my NS and have been working as a technician for about 9 months now. (dip in electronics)
Im thinking of taking up a part-time IT degree course in SIM to upgrade myself, either through University of London or University of Wollongong.
i have spoken with some of my frens. most of them seem to advice me against taking up IT, saying there's no prospect in IT, job markets are being conquered by foreigners. or operations moving out of singapore to china and india. its the situation so bad now? issit really so hard to get a job with an IT degree? the pay will be very low?
im thinking of IT becos i have some interest in IT (im a very technical person), hence it wouldn't be as tough as studying something i dun have interest in. i have absolutely no idea about business, management, finance etc.. so currently, im not planning to take those.
the dateline for SIM application is 15 nov, would appreciate if i can get some advice. feel so lost thanks!
