Unregistered LOL the difference is that trash kids who pick cs for the money will burn out and be hardstuck senior dev even after 10 years of experience. The reality is that it's not the field but the person. You could be a legend in big 4 if you are good. If you suck then it won't matter where you go lol.

Also tech will always be relevant and there's no limit to it. AI, faster network, newer phone, tech, etc.

But that doesn't mean any moron can just study CS and even reach the GES survey salary average. There's a ton of mediocre NTU NUS kids earning 4k while the ones who actually enjoy coding are earning 7-8k

Unregistered Same logic applies today.

Kids should be wary their ideal choice after 2 years NS and 4 years degree, the world may be in a different climate than today.

Who knows whatís 2028 going to be like.

Wts?
Lol it doesn't pay to take career advice from boomers and the older generation, since they're information and data points are backward looking. They can only advise based on past experience, which is not indicative of future trends.

12 years ago accounting was still somewhat decent, albeit not the most prestigious (the Top 3 was medicine, dentistry and law at least for NUS), but the cracks were already showing at the seams. I still remember BAcc looking down on BBA thinking that the latter was less prestigious or rigorous.

The prestige of the course went downhill rapidly after 2012-2013.

With the rise of CS as the next newest prestigious major, lots of kids that couldn't or didn't want to study the Top 3 courses quickly hopped onto the CS bandwagon when they would have otherwise chosen Acc.

thats why i compare bro
LOL as an acc grad u should know that accounting / auditing can be done by Poly grads. The very proof is the fact that many Poly grads are hired in B4 . Even if we talk about degree holders, audit lets in thousands of grads from half f**k JHK universities and dunno what f**k sixth-tier or seventh-tier Aussie degree mills en masse.

Don't hv an over inflated sense of urself pls lol. If you're a BAcc grad from NUS/NTU/SMU, it just means you're kumgong & took a longer and more expensive route to reach the same destination as jiuhukias and Poly kias, and with the same outcomes as them.

://.afr.com/companies/professional-services/ey-global-partners-to-discuss-split-timeline-as-rivals-see-opportunity-20220620-p5av5o

One rough timeline for EYís plan to split the firm involves any proposal being issued to the firmís estimated 12,000 partners around the globe by the end of August if the global leadership decide to proceed with the break-up, according to an industry source.

The timing and other details of the plan will likely be discussed at a meeting of senior EY partners from around the world scheduled for this week.
==========
The view of leaders at one rival big four consulting firm is that the current uncertainty around EY will be distracting to partners and those close to partnership. In this view, rivals will have an opportunity to win EY clients away from the firm and should look to recruit senior EY staff members.
========
How does this affect me
