Why is it so difficult to switch industry ?
if u want the truth, let's face it...matured adults are up against cheaper, younger n faster fresh grads who probably ask for the same pay.

and over @ careersgov, u have degree vacancies outnumbering diploma vacancies 9 to 1, even though the govt has announced that they will try to "make" most civil servants go on the 1 career path scheme.

in short, dont believe in their words, but rather look at their actions.
