Is it too much to ask for a job/career in arts, social science etc etc that pays good, has very good job growth and highly satisfying? (1 Viewer)

Job satisfaction is kind of a meme. Work can be fun, but jobs suck. You can enjoy your work, but having to commute and work at a certain time of the day (9-5) with some dorky boss breathing down your neck makes it not fun. Having to ask permission from HR to take annual leave to go on holidays sucks. Doing good work without getting much extra in terms of pay sucks.
I think it depends on what your job is and the organisation you work for, as well as your own personal circumstances... whilst I haven't had the luxury of a 9-5 job in many years, I don't think I would describe my boss in that way, and I am pretty happy that I can generally pick leave when I need and just let my bosses know my plan.

Coding is extremely tedious and a majority of solutions are driven not by the devs but by the Business.

It is true that a lot of comm/eco grads will not have coding skills but it is also true that these skills can be picked up on the job.

From my experience a lot of devs although are great at delivering the code struggle to understand the objectives and needs behind the strategy for the code.

Success after uni and high school is not always determined from your grades. It is more to do with passion, drive and and your individual attitude.
