Re: Could I have a future in IT???
also those average wages are for people with experiance.
it takes a while to get to thise levels of salary. you'll find that as a junior developer you'll only earn the same kind of money as a junior network admin or an helpdesk person.
by all means I think it's great to change careers, but really it should be because you have a love of something, not because you think there is money there.
in computers it's a big myth that there are hundreds of really well paid jobs.
there are actually a few really well paid job.
lots of well paid jobs and hundreds of poorly paid jobs.
generally speaking those first starting start with the poorly paid jobs.
as DJchris has said do you really think that you'll want to take a poorly paid job whilst you're getting experiance whilst it pushes you closer to an age where you might like to retire? (that said there is no reason why someone should retire from IT, -it's ardly a strenuous job!).

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
