Hi,
Well, that's a very difficult question to answer! Do I think you'll get a job? Yes. Do I think you will get the perfect graduate job straight away? Well, that's something I cannot predict.

Perhaps you could start volunteering somewhere? Helping older people to use the net etc, or teaching young children at an after school club - or whatever takes your fancy. They will build on your communication skills and self-confidence etc and set you apart from the rest of the graduates in your cohort.

Maybe you could choose what you would like to specialise in.

Or speak to a careers adviser.

In my opinion it is always wise to make a 'plan B' too. Most of the volunteering I did whilst out of work was really interesting and gave me the opportunity to branch out into doing things that I would never have had the confidence to do otherwise.

My other piece of advice: take every opportunity that is offered to you.

All the best :)

So you don't like interacting with people? do you want to move up from data entry eventually?

That's fair enough, I often prefer to keep my distance from most people, I find dealing with their egos and nonsense tiresome and repetitive.

If all you want it data inputting then ok, if you are a fast typer then am sure you wont have trouble getting a job.

You're doing a BSc in IT when what you want is a data entry job???

I suggest you grab a part-time one of those now, and see how you like it, before you finish your study. Your college should have a careers advisory service and there are many more possibilities for an IT graduate, some of which would let you stay home with your computer -- and get paid for it.

I'm concerned about someone with a preference for isolation, and I have a feeling the desire for "peace" mentioned in all your posts so far means a) very sensitive to the often-harsh world out there, and b) a distaste for the competition involved in getting a job.

Unless you really are a natural hermit -- and there aren't many happy ones around -- I suggest you try talking to other students who you think may be similar to you. If you're studying online at home, look for a forum on the college website. The quiet ones (like you) are terrific at 'reading' character but often hesitant to do anything about it; the brash ones are self-identifying, obviously.

Right now you're in the best position to find kindred spirits, the people who are interested in the same things as you are. Aim to make at least one and preferably two or three good friends who you actually like hanging out with. By the time you're all qualified, you'll very likely have discussed lots of good ideas for making money, either together or separately, and you'll have a support team at hand for when things don't go so well.

Assuming you really do want to spend your days alone with your computer, I'm sure you're already much better informed about making money online than I am. I can't think of anything worse (apart from crucifixion or data entry) but with your skills and knowledge -- to say nothing of your passion for technology -- you have plenty of options.

IT degrees are good for making money from.

This video can help you change your self talk to become more of a money magnet.

I have interest in IT, but I'm doing the degree course just because my father wants me to do it, it is his wish.
I also like nature, plants, animals, and more importantly food,(1 day while meditating, I had a thought of becoming chef)
like to design sense full things too, I'm an artist type of person

It makes a lot of sense to get the piece of paper for something you're passionate about. I'm curious as to how you're liking study. Does it play to your natural strengths and inclinations -- or does it feel alien, too goal-oriented, whereas your time online used to be about fun and exploration?

Nothing can kill a wonderful hobby as fast as making it your bread and butter. I know you sense this, hence the appeal of grunt work that makes few demands on your right-brained mind. Unfortunately the poor hourly rate means it also takes up a lot of time. Even if it's well-paid, the time spent on an assembly line (that was my choice, in similar circumstances) stretches out into hell and makes it well-nigh impossible to access your creativity after knock-off time.

I also like nature, plants, animals...


Me too. That's the 'natural' province of those who feel threatened by the people in their lives, who can seem cynical in the things they consider important and often downright cruel in the things they think are funny.

I knew this from your first post. You refer to yourself as peaceful and have said several times that your goal is peace. I'm seeing a young man with a great need for self-expression, conflicted because the rest of the world is telling him he's got to earn his living ... and he has some doubts he can do that. Makes me think of a young Mike Oldfield, who (according to the legend) was in his parents' garage recording and overdubbing a dozen musical instruments, all of which he played himself, until Richard Branson heard about him and Tubular Bells became an international hit.

You haven't said how old you are but you're clearly old enough to be making your own decisions about where you're headed in life. Whether it's an amazing new software program, culinary masterpieces in a good restaurant or something else, I think you'll find peace if you don't have to worry about making a living and can concentrate on doing whatever it is you love to do. The difficulty with that -- if you don't either stand strong alone, establish some supportive friendships, or run into a Branson -- is having to play by your father's rules.

The way to peace is psychic self-defence, being certain of who you are and what you want. The conflict only comes in when, often with the best intentions, The Rest Of The World is pulling you away from your Self.

Hello vdy,
I would say that I know html, and a bit of web designing, but that hardly interests me

Actually here's the story :
I was doing my B.E. in C.S.E. , which had all sorts of programming languages like C, C++, COBOL, and what not..
I disliked them, more importantly there was also Mathematics, and I cant express how much I hated it ! I just wanted to drop out of B.E., But in the second year or so (fortunately or unfortunately) I had some serious health issue and finally I dropped out, and hopefully my father didn't have any problem with that at that point of my life !
BTW: I was mildly sick through out the years for about 4-5 years before getting admission in the Engineering College.

After getting well after about an year, I started to think about what to do next, I thought I should keep it simple and found a course which I thought would be fun to do i.e. BSc I.T.I.M. which doesn't have programming languages in its course.
I did a web designing course separately after getting well as a starter. And now in the near future I would like to do some small courses like Photoshop, Graphic Designing, etc just for fun :)

Sometimes people become physically ill because there's a deep conflict between who they are and who a Significant Other wants them to be. It's a way of dropping out without active rebellion.

I hope you don't have to be ill again to start living your own life.
