    I did Youth Justice work for years, and although it was completely unfulfilling and depressing, I still would choose social work over Tech as working with people interests me more than machines..

    Waloshin, what is it that makes you curious as to which career path I would choose from the two?

    Well it would be nice to know what other people think of these careers, what they dislike or like about them.

    Well generally I spend a lot of time working with people as a technician. Plus most any job is a neat and clean problem, investigation, diagnosis, resolution and happy end user (though no "Happy Endings":().

    As a social worker you have arguments, children being returned to problem homes, breaking up of families, anguish, grief, threats &c. I certainly would not prefer to be a social worker.

    Though the two choices do seem odd. How about a third "Oil boy for the Swedish bikini team":rolleyes:.

    Are you incapable of making your own choices?

    Next time you need advice, just ask yourself what YOU want, because what I want should matter very little to you.

    I chose B, because I prefer the company of machines over that of people.

    B. Troubled computers are a lot easier and a lot less depressing to deal with than troubled people. :(

    If you can't even help yourself choose your own path, how are you going to help others? Maybe you can tell them to join a forum and start a thread about it.
