My degree is BIT.

I worked as software developer years ago.

Many of us switched from IT to another field upon graduation or a few years after graduation.

Reasons for switching field:
1. Horrible OT hours. Some companies expect us to work on Sat and Sun.
2. Abundance of cheap Indian foreigner programmers. The pay of software developers/programmers are suppressed.
We did not see the long-term prospects and benefits of continuing in software field.

Just sharing some light on how come locals are not willing to work as software developers/programmers.
