do you agree/disagree with this quote

A photo of EastSideBoyz EastSideBoyz

Seems these days, accountants and the finance/banker wannabe crowd is running straight into a trainwreck. Just like those IT guys who were unlucky enough to graduate in the past decade to high unemployment.




Alot of people on this forum wish to become CA's and whatnot but the amount of grads going into these streams are just overfloading the market and hence making it even much difficult to find a job in those type of fields..

I am not worried in the slightest. I do believe that networking will become even more prevelant however, as there will be lots of competition.

Oh, and all the baby boomers are going to be retiring/dying right?

Lol, Highly disagree.

Seems like a hater or jealous "wannabe" wrote that.

First of all, it is untrue, he is just trying to kill the hope for many.
He obviously will not make it far in life if he keeps writing those sort of comments.

yeah it is true that there's a large number of people going into business. However, do all of them make it to the very end?

It's like saying a lot of people want to become doctors..How many end actually up being one?..

It was never exactly easy to become a banker/CA, and now more than ever competition is fierce. Take the quote with a grain of salt and use it as motivation to strive for your best.

If you're the sort of person to be deterred by that, you wouldn't make it anyway.

Somewhat, although it wouldn't affect my goals.

If you can truly set yourself apart rather than just simply blend into the crowd, then you should be fine. As for me, I'm making sure I'm one of the few top students.

Valid point. Plus, if you graduate from a top-notch school (or just a respectable one like Mac, Ryerson) and not Fleming College for example, you're still ahead of the majority.

So no, I have to disagree with the original quote.

Not really. You can totally ignore it and go for your goal.
It is true that the really motivated ones DO get what they want.

Disagree.....IT guys still find a good number of jobs; computers arent going anywhere...and no one can tell what will happen in the future with accounting or finance/banking therefore such a statement is false. If you enjoy accounting or finance/banking then do it. If your just doing it entirely for money then you'll end up hating your job.

When you say IT, are you talking about business, or the other computer eng/software people?

That's investment banking though....One of the most competitive, most gruelling business jobs. They get laid off all the time - that's the risk you take but the reward is that it's extremely well-paying.

Perhaps, but it's impossible to tell for sure. Supply and demand is always a factor in employment and salaries, but there are so many variables and so many things that can change that deciding your career based on perceived oversupply in coming years isn't an intelligent choice.
