Default Advice needed

Hi all. I'm a 25 year old diploma holder who just completed his National Service. Currently I am looking for a job and have no desire to further my studies(or at least not now). I have no prior work experience in any field.

I studied in IT but I am willing to try and learn new things. I understand that with my qualifications coupled with my near-to-zero work experience, I will get a low paying job. What advice do you guys have for me in choosing a suitable and reasonably paying job that I can advance or gain experience? Do you guys think being in the IT line now is good?

Any input is greatly appreciated.

How much you expect for "reasonably paying job"?

Probably between the range of 1.5k to 1.7k? I have no clue.

Do you have an interest in IT? If not do you have a clear goal of what you want to do?

If you have no idea yet, better to get a IT related job to gain some working experience...from there on after working 1-2 years you would have a clearer idea of how you want to progress...good luck.

Current starting pay for poly grads is around 1.7 - 1.8k, so your expectations are realistic.

The question is really find something you are interested in, your pay expectation should be no problem for more fresh dip grad jobs...
