Sorry for bumping a semi-old thread. I'm unsure what I want to really do. My careers advisor suggested that I become an Actuary, and I think I could like it because it seems like it uses both mathematical and English skills,the regular hours of work and though I'm unsure about advising people and being detail-oriented. I'm a bit worried regarding the job's availability since it seems a bit low. According to my research, they make ££40,560-55,000 a year on average and the trainee's starting salary is roughly £19,000-25,000. I like the fact that the job seems 50/50 in terms of the gender split so I won't have to work with scrotes 24/7.
I also like the idea of going into IT. The career advising website I'm using recommends so, and I mainly because they seem to earn a lot (I want to get into egl), like becoming a Computer Programmer, Computer Software Developer, Database Administrator or Database engineer, despite not having much, if any, interest in IT and not wanting to have to deal with workplace sexism in my daily life. However, I'm slightly less interested since they seem to earn as much as actuaries do, so I may not go into IT
