Study for demands of the Job Market

In the world we live in, it is important to have paper qualification in order to get a good paying job. That was a ideal statement that may not be 100% true.

In today world, we spent almost 1/4 or 2/5 of our live in education but what is the purpose of studying? What if you do not like what you study or after you have completed your education or the worst case scenario, the demand is not there? What will happen to the years of your study?

You notice I did not mention the finances part of the matter for education as  the time one devote to it is more precise than momentary valve. 

Now many chose their subjects they major in depending on the forecast of the Job Market demand. Here is what is wrong and at risk if one do so.

What is hot in Job Market?

In the 1980s, Electronic was a hot subject and in the 1990s was the IT. In the 2000s some projected the market will be in life science and now in 2012, what happen to these market now? Are they still in demand?

That is the risk you take when you choose to study a hot subject and following the market trend. Now the sad part is your education would take at least 3 to 5 years to get a degree certification and 3 to 5 years is a long time for the economy to shift and market demand and before you know it, it maybe a sunset industry.

Imagine the number of people who shared your thinking to have the same qualification to land themselves in a good paying and steady job. If that economy or demand goes off, you have to compete with these numbers of people to take the limited job and the lowest wages to get the job.

So what if the market is there? Can you be the cream of the crops of those number to compete among each other for the same job? That will fact in the over supply because of the large influx of fresh professional in this field. By then you are just on of many with such qualification and you are merely catching up rather than standing out.

If one would have study for the knowledge and the interest more than the projected market demand, likelihood of such individual would have saved a lot of heartaches and excel in their profession as the passion and genuine interest is there.

Aim Properly

It seems a common thing about man not having to pee properly in public toilet that there have been some interesting sign to get them to pee properly.

The latest reported was the following found in Singapore Khoo Teck Puat Hospital.

The poster do touch on some man ego of sizes and proper aiming. As funny as it is, I still think the previous method in Changi Airport to encourage proper aiming in Men washroom is more effective.

Smarter Device Smarter You?

Some day ago, I saw this sticker on a local newspaper. It was Smart TV ad by Samsung and it said "Smart TV, make me smarter".

This advertisement statement make me think and I think it may not necessary to be true. In fact, the opposite could be true.

Have Smarter device that think for you make you more stupid less smarter.

Just to name an example will be auto spell function. We have been getting better writing in reports and assignments but is the writer really that smart as he/she seems? Most of the time as auto spell check for us and automatic replace the correct spelling, we do not really bother to learn from that mistake as we know the same devices will do the same correction from me the next time.

If you still do not agree with me, grab a pen and paper and start writing and you will be surprised to see  how many spelling and grammar mistakes you will make. If you still deny, it could be you are ignorant of you making such grammar and spelling mistake in the first place.  As languages concern, you have to read and write to prefect it.

The same goes to calculation as well. Can you do a some simple calculation with in your mind and not using a calculator?

Having a Smarter device is good but do not put too much dependance on it as doing so will not make you smarter.
