Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

(OP)
Hello, I'm 22 years old and i am a finalist in the degree of electrical engineering and computers, now I'm almost finished,only final projecto to finnish and i want to start working, there are my doubts about wich professionally area/sector i should follow me to focus 100% to be good it.

Because my degree is very general and we learn a little bit of everything in several sectors, which are the follows:
-Programming (software)
-Programming (hardware)
-Digital/Analogic electronics
-Telecommunications
-Computer Networks

According to current labor market, wich sector u advise me to follow? i like almost everything, so i want to decide the best sector to follow , the one that provides me better future, best salaries and ease of finding a job arround the world.

Can you help me?? Thanks,
Chaud

RE: Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

come back in 20 years and we'll be able to tell you !

i don't think any one speciality will meet all your goals.  landing your 1st job will probably be the hardest.  if you've got lots of fields that interest you, why limit your options now ?

and right now your fields are focused on technical aspects.  what about mgmt ?

how about where to work ? where you are ?  overseas (ie move to another country) ??

the key is to recognise opportunity and to take it (or not !?).

the hard work is going out and looking for those opportunities.

good luck !

I don't think you'll find the answer the labor market.  You'll find the answer in yourself.  One of the more important aspects of any job is enjoying what you're doing.

Where do you want to be?
 

Good Luck

rb1957 , ofc in first job i dont want to be rich, im thinking in future, wich sector will provide me better opportunities, because i dont want to follow a dead sector.

I from portugal, but when i get some professional experience,i pretend to work in other countrys, in europe. What u mean with mgmt?

CajunCenturion like i said, i like all these sections,i like engineering in geral, that's why i am focusing in sector with best carreer progression and facility obtaining a job.

Thanks for answers,
Chaud

RE: Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

i don't see any of your fields becoming dead ends in our life-time, but i would anticipate alot of change !

i'll read "pretend" as "intend" (ESL !) ... europe is a large place with lots of opportunities.

"mgmt" is management, as opposed to technical.

RE: Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

start with I&C for mining and petroleum industries

RE: Hello, help me deciding wich way to go professional

I think the best thing is to do several internships and then identify which is the best for you and probably you will get profound idea by doing it...

Telecommunication and digital electronics will be fine in future...

According to this labor market....

Take whatever job you can get!

Just kidding. Just find something with a stable company and a position that will expose you to as many aspects of the job as you can find. That is the perfect 'first job' because it will give you a broad amount of experience to learn from as you work on phase 2 of your career.

I'm not an EE, but the principles of a first job are the same all the way around.

And I hope you aren't from the US - because if you are, you need to go back to English class and learn how to spell and punctuate.
