there are a ton of social workers, nurses, teachers who don't earn as much as their peers in the private sectors in, say, investment sectors, but I can tell you without a doubt many of them are more satisfied than their peers in the cut throat wall street equivalent in sg. who is better off financially, emotionally, physically and spiritually? the thing is, there is no one single defining factor to say which job is better than the other. it all boils down to what we want to do in our lives and how we want to live it.
The naivety in this post is shocking.

Pay wise not important? You are really naive.
Hmm… Okay I apologising for mixing them up then. Was giving recommendation to TS regarding her desire to run around and does meaningful work.

I was personally thankful to a HR consultant that personally meet me near my office to give resume and soft interview tips and interview opportunities to companies I would never had the chance to get an interview chance if I applied on my own.

For me and you maybe we are driven by salary but for TS she is driven by meaningful work which I totally respect for and hence that advice. Depression and work fatigue is real and different people have different tolerance level. If TS have high stress tolerance then yea, just give up dream and chase $$$ lo.

Anyway to TS regarding studies people change all the time. I was last in cohort in my school during sec school, all sorts of teachers always find me to talk to me about my results, meaning E8, F9 for my science subjects but I’m getting B+ to A for 3 bio 1 physics and 1 chem mods in NUS (taking them as electives) Should throw away the baggage and start learning from scratch again.

Hopefully TS will make a decision she won’t regret.

one thing I must say is that, as we age, our worldview perspectives do change. and with that, our career objectives may change as well. like for eg, when I was in my 20s and mid 30s, i valued $$$ above everything else in a job and hence i chased very hard for it. but when i am older, i don't really place $$ on a pedestal anymore. true that money is very important, but it's not everything. everyone is different. we have different needs and wants and we spend money differently. some are ok with taking the train to work and some want to drive a BMW. so ok lor, u trade ur time, energy, mental well-being emotions and sometimes health for that promotion/more work/$$$$. nothing wrong in that. just be aware that we're all trading something for our jobs.

Don't apologise to such arrogance. u'll also come across such toxic behaviour in your workplace - best to learn how to combat it and put them in their place.

I only realized i had an interest in physiotherapy at my final year of uni. All this time, i just studied engineering without interest because it has a wide job opportunity. But i dont think i will go through another years of study.
