    I wonder how all those class loads of fashion students they kept pumping out next door to my class at uni are doing now?

    Well those nice dressed fashion chicks are probably "socialites" now.. paris hilton rofl.

    At least the Ellerslie race course isn't too drab looking. It'll be filled with those chicks.
    Also, don't mock the sluts because they end up marrying millionaires...

    I call them highly skilled gold diggers. Look what happened to Brooke McAlister - Luke McAlister's ex - she had nothing but dressed to impress men at bars & landed herself a dream husband - an All Black. Even though she broke up with him, she's still famous & rich from having a daughter with him.

    Go door knocking. That's what I pretty much did. Use any contacts you have and ask them to hook you up/refer you. Just be persistent and call the employer like every second day

    Heard this year at auckland that they had to reject people from second year civil engineering, which is definitely a first. Must be a safe choice I think.




    .. It was the best I could add to this thread

    The worst is still yet to hit Singapore.

    Well, he gave her an STD when he got back from an AB tour. Or so I heard.

    Anyone know which field is more employable compsci or electrical engineering and what the average starting salary is like?

    Everyone I've talked to seems to just talk up their own field.

    I so chose the best time to go back to uni. Haha, take that financial crisis, and the Swedish kroner just keeps dropping and dropping so my aussie dollars are worth more and more everyday Employment can kiss my ass for another two years.

    Everyone out my my class of 180 from last year had a job before leaving uni lol go civil engineering!
    I highly doubt that.

    BBUS Grad, finished last year, got a wicked Job and a good package, got the job in 4 weeks. Its not impossible to get work you just have to show that you are employable.

    It helps if you do stuff while you are at uni that will help you get a job. Grades help but as i said at the start if you can't show that you are employable then they won't be interested. Also get some part-time work, if you haven't worked before then anything will do (Including McDonalds or something).

    I was working in retail sales, then up to manager, a year as a marketing manager at another company and a project management role. Finished uni with that experience was the key to getting a job so quickly, and having options of jobs to choose from not just the one i picked. Most employers or recruitment agents couldn't believe the experience i had for a Grad (i graduated at 23 mind you as i've done other things).

    Wade McKinnon's current facebook status is:

    Wade 'parties like a rock star looks like a movie star plays like an allstar and ****s like a porn star'

    followed by other previous classics such as:
    'Wade is so cool even i wana be me.' and 'Wade knows all the fish in the sea wishes they could be with me.'

    **** he's cool.

    Also, I too heard from a reliable source that Luke McAlister gave his missus an STD. Apparently when she confronted him, he told her that 'all the boys were doing in on tour'.

    yeh gutted to be a grad right now went to this Deutsche Bank seminar last night, there was like 300 odd people there and they were like yea, we got one grad job going next year, and its in sydney epic fail
    At UOA? Likewise.

    My impression of the bankers was that they were rather snooty and up themselves compared to the management consultants (other presentations I've gone to). I'll possibly still apply there, but it's highly unlikely that I'll take a job even if offered one. NB: Also have no finance quals, just have BE Hons (1st class) and BSC conjoint degree.

    WANG:
    I'd definitely do software engineering over compsci. No offence to anyone at UOA who did compsci, but the calibre of a lot of the people in my compsci classes is a fair about lower than softeng. Not necessarily in terms of smarts, more work ethic. In compsci, about 30% of people enrolled turn up. In the paper I'm doing which is shared with softeng, most of the people who turn up are SEs, but the enrollment is split 50/50. In addition, you can get a BSc compsci with minimal effort in compsci (only 3-4 third stage papers). Whereas in SE, you're required to do all your papers as SE papers - as an employer, you know what you're getting in a grad's knowledge.

    However I'm personally more interested in EE than SE (slightly), but I think that you'll probably find jobs more easily as a SE.

    pics of McAlister's ex-bird?

    but yeah anyway, i have no f'ing idea if i'll get a graduate position.

    How far do they look into your grades? I think i have like one A- and thats the highest

    Depends on the field you are in. Engineering and Accounting/Finance i'd imagine are crutial, as they seem to sift through the top grade people first for grad positions. I'm guessing Delph would have done reasonably well at Uni to get a Grad position.

    that part of the world is awesome. l2adapt . just cause you cant handle the jandle , doesnt mean its not a nice place to live.



    an re: the compsci / engi , i would probably have to go for electrical engineering.

    Electrical by far, cant tell you an average but the range for some of my friends from electrical eng (2007) was 35k (rose quickly though) to over 50k.

    im an engineer but in neither field so im relatively neutral

    [edit] i assume you mean compsys not compsci? no such thing as compsci eng, unless you mean BSc in compsci in which case there is no comparison with electrical eng

    hmm, im in first year engineering (UOA) and heading towards software engineering but im thinking of changing to compsci due to the high work load :/

    cant seem to find time for a social life, leisure, part time work, games...etc anymore, and its just the first week T_T

    what do u guys think?
