I hope if someone have any Idea about anything on them, and help me to decide where to go and what to be!

Um banker is the way to go, or i always hear welding = cash in the bank. i would say I.T. is an easier then e-com but then if you no good at hardware and trouble shooting and good at coding maybe e-coms . so since its hard to know what you know and what strenghs you have; ill say welding. :thumbsup:

The question is, what is your passion? What is the one thing that you would do almost for free? If money is your biggest motivator, welding is a great option. Especially if you like working in severe weather conditions, being filthy dirty, developing a bad back, bad knees, and being around toxic fumes.:) As I tell young folks who go through my shop...if money is your biggest motivator, go into the business/sales side of a business that peaks your curiosity.

thanks guys..

no welding please hehehe

I have passion to both of them IT and e-com, but I'm afraid a bit about E-commerce , because I didn't study business before and have no Background of it, At ALL :D

and by the same! they tell me that is E-Com would be better to get a good job with a good salary also.
unlike IT.

I have to decide until this saturday only:(

Well if you are looking at anything - be well rounded, take some extra courses in accounting even if they are from an extension service for farming!

You will learn how to really watch the money, and also spot if something doesn't look right, giving you a heads up if you need to look elsewhere for work before the rest of the crew.

I still think that robotics is an upcoming field, just darn few places to learn and get a good education in it.

In any case you are making the decision, we just offer the suggestions from experience and what we see from that experience...

thanks itc

it's a good and a bad idea, in taking extra courses

the good is that I'll be well rounded and I'll get better jobs and more salary.

the bad is, that I should first take one of the two subjects IT or e-com first and then after (or within) three years I take some extra courses (something about business maybe) so I'm not sure If I can because it will cost too much (in my country) to add extra courses by the same time as I study one of those.

thanks guys I'll think about it, they said (the university) that saturday I must go there and choose what subject I want to study.

Personally, I'd rather be a welder. Who wants to sit in a cubicle all day under bad flourescent lighting? You'll be miserable if money is your biggest motivator for choosing a career. Do something you like doing.

I didn't said MONEY is my biggest motivator for choosing a job..
I just want to get a good job to live.
I mean by a job that would be BALANCED.

If I was running for money, I would study Business and Banking rather than IT and ecom.
But I'm not
