Pr(o)bally best just become a plumber, more lucrative :)
It would be. But given the endless crap treatment of junior and mid IT and process staff by large outsourcers, the unpleasant culture of large US firms, and their burning desire to move everything offshore, a plumber will have a lot more control over their own destiny, and far greater job satisfaction than working for some crapola outfit like DXC, IBM or the others.
Would you encourage your kids to get a degree (and £50k of debt), and then go and work for the soul-eaters of IT outsourcing?
