Ooh, what is this scuttlebutt?

I swear I read a comment on their site somewhere that while the Black Friday sale was in store only, there were plans for some Internet offers on Monday. Presumably the dregs of the last pair sale at further reduced prices. Just have to cross my finger and pray no one snaffled those cleverleys I've been saving for...

Thanks for letting me know

Call it a professional curiosity, I'm an organisational psychologist. I work in talent management/HR consulting.

 

The majority (95%+) of the members in the Aussie thread have a university degree, or are soon to have one.

 

That's a telling demographic.

 

Then again, everyone has a degree in this day and age.

I think it's a fairly logical leap to assume the majority of posters on this thread would be white collar professionals/entrepreneurs or involved in the fashion industry.

 

My interest was if there was a trend where one profession had a disproportionate representation over another and why that may be the case? I would assume most people in this thread fall into the lawyer/finance/IB/mgmtconsultant type category, that is pure speculation though.

I'm studying computer science would eventually like to get into some research job. My ideal job would be to work for a FOSS company, such as Mozzila, but living in the states doesn't really interest me. I'd love to live in Japan.

I like free software, I use linux exclusively now (apart for the tax return - thanks ato). More compatibility with science software too - theoretical physics student here.

I don't. I never wanted to go to uni, just to work.

Are you ( or Jason) planning on setting this up? Otherwise I'm happy to do so myself.

No, not really. Your / our small community of privileged individuals are fortunate enough to have a university education and be in a position to speak at length about / consume unnecessary luxuries.

I was making a remark about the increased number of students going on to university from high school. Where maybe 20% of high school graduates went onto university, I think the statistic is something up around 30-40% now.

 

I removed my post - it was a terrible, terrible joke. I'll step aside and leave that stuff to you.

MS, just cuz you remove you posts doesn't make you as cool as vox.

TBM demonstrates true next level sprezz.
