What careers would be good for the future?
HI there, I'm 22 years old, and currently in a dead end job, i left college because the last thing i wanted was to spend the rest of my life fixing computers. So I’m wondering if anyone out there knows what good, stable careers are, I’m a little scatter brained about this, every day I think of something new to be, recruitment consultant, mortgage advisor, financial advisor, management… I have no idea what I really want to do! All I know is, I want to have a safe and secure future, and I’m willing to study for it. I was going to be a freelance photographer but my eyes are starting to go, so this has put me into a bit of a frenzy to find a new career, if anyone has any good idea’s I’d love to hear them! I’ve also heard about lists that predict good careers for the future, if anyone has any of those that’d be great. Cheers!

Fixing computers is probably a bit limited, but you could look to move more into computer and information security. This is a growing area and we do have a skills shortage in the industry here in the UK.
