Hello @soniajessi,
:welcome: ##\qquad ## !​

It comes across as a little bit funny that you should ask five (including the thread title) questions after an earlier post that answers many of them. Are you asking for yourself or for later reference in posts answering others ?

My direct answers to direct questions (in all modesty: pretty useless :rolleyes: ) :

  • Good career choice ? Yes and no.
  • In demand ? Good people (standing out as you say) are always in demand, everywhere, no matter what discipline. Fashionable professions attract a lot of riffraff.
  • Hard ? Yes
  • Lot of hours ? Yes
  • Hard to find a job ? Yes.
My question: what did you expect from posting this ?
