#1 career choice

I really need help, i like the project work consultants do (and the client interaction) but really dont like the sound of living permanetly in a hotel. For this reason i am thinking of being a software engineer/developer but feel this job is too boring (e.g. no human interaction, 24/7 in front of a computer...)

Please advice me someone

the issue here is; are you a peoples person or a gick? once you are clear of this, then you will have no problem with your choice. The fact is that 99% of those working with IT, telecoms are good on humanistic or dealing with people on a face to face basis. It will be important to find out what you prefer the most; speaking/listening to people or pressing keeboards.

Stephen, if you don't like the idea then don't even think about it. The reality can be far better or worse than the idea of it - any travelling consultant will tell you that. For some the lifestyle is ideal - usually younger chaps not fussed about settling into a relationship just yet (quite difficult enough in the job anyway, frankly) and wanting a first taste of fine wine and cake, or older chaps whose wives are busy or sick of them anyway and who have found it difficult to get out of being a good consultant. The middle ground is occupied by those 30 - 40 somethings who are either earning alot and never in the same place 2 days running or are not earning alot and desperate to change their life. Having said all that, you'd have to be clinically brain dead to actually want to develop software, surely?
