Redditors, what career path did you choose that you strongly advise against?

Just go into STEM or finance

as someone who has a STEM degree, working on another, and has worked in financial services for nearly a decade, it really bothers me that people think it's just that simple. the 'good' jobs are not in unlimited supply and everyone wants them. and people like me are literally automating half of those jobs out of existence.

the work world is a fucking shit show right now. even 20 years ago there was some level of stability in a career and profession. now you have fucking doctors and lawyers saying they want to learn to code because they're worried about being marginalized and maybe one day replaced by AI down the road. it's fucking nuts.
