Sorry kid, but on today's world inheriting hard beats working hard any time.
And we (engineers) are not helping. Each day there are less and less jobs for the people and the knowledge entry is set higher and higher. Robots will most likely replace most jobs in the next 10-20 years. Just look at what Google is doing if you do not believe me.
So you got two possible career choices. Become a career criminal (government sponsored or not) or learn how to kill robots for fun and profit. Which will be on high demand once the singularity takes place.
Career advices are generally not working for kids. One must be agile and look around all the time, make his own research and find most suitable way of spending future time. Advices are not much of help in this case. Because, what is good today - is very likely to be bad in the future.
