I am a dental Technician but I end up being a driver in a Clinic since I earn more doing this than in a Dental Lab. Most ppl say " hey, Dental tech earn a lot" but that's a falacy. Only the Lab owner is who amount the bucks nor their employees since they pay by % nor a steady wage etc ..

I was thinking in studying another career but I realized that in Miami only the legal and health fields are profitable, maybe hospitality. But what if you don't like those fields, would you study them anyway just for the money or would you pursue your career of your dreams in despite of this bad economy?

It would be good to know how many people in Miami is doing a different job/activity different from what studied originally... Mention your original career and if you are currently working on it or not.

I am studying Computer Engineering, and since I don't own a house here, if there won't be a good job for me here, I'll just move somewhere where is. And make my home there.

I'm doing exactly what I studied. Would I go to school to learn another field just for the money? No way, if you don't like what you do all the money in the world wouldn't matter if you hated going to work each day.

I haven't changed majors but before taking major-related classes I wanted to go into the computer tech/CIS/IT path. But after reading around it seemed Management Information Systems might be better in the long run, so thats what I took and I've stuck with it. Hopefully it works out.

I studied electrical engineering but never had a job in the field. My companies I started were in IT, and security camera/dvr systems respectively. Other jobs I had included tutoring college students, teaching courses, neon art, machining, equipment operation, and tree trimming. On the side I have done electronic and mechanical repairs for cash. Currently I am getting into farming and eventually alternative fuels.

As societies become more complex, the costs of meeting new challenges increase, until there comes a point where extra resources devoted to meeting new challenges produce diminihsing and then negative returns. At this point, societies become less complex (they collapse into smaller societies). Social problems are always (ultimately) a problem of recruiting enough energy to "fuel" the increasing social complexity which is necessary to solve ever-newer problems

Just google "Peak Oil" and you will have the answer.
