5. Are there many available jobs for computer engineers?
6. Is your job very rewarding compared to the job you do?
7. How much do you earn? Are most salaries in your country more or less than yours?
8. From a 1 to 10 rating how much will you give your career?
9. After many years do you feel glad and satisfied that you entered this career? Why?
10. Where do you work? Did you need extra training/qualifications to enter this specialization other than your university degree?
11. How much hours do you work daily? Are these hours considered more or less than the average working hours?

Those questions are a huge invasion of privacy and I think you know that. No-one is going to answer questions like that over the internet. Goodbye.

When you have questions to ask about careers in a specific field, you'll obtain more valid and useful answers if you go to that field's associations or societies and ask them there.

In the case of computer engineers, you might try the world's largest association of technological engineers.

For others, scroll down to about the middle of the page here for a list of other computer engineer associations and societies around the world:

Asked of an individual, yes, the questions are an invasion of privacy. You'll want to look at the statistics of the field in general to get answers that are more accurate and easily obtained than asking on an individual basis.

You'll find answers to most of your other questions at these links:

The bureau of labor statistics has the numbers you're looking for:

@Butrflynet,
Good work, BFN.
We get a lot (well, it seems like a lot) of these questions and an individual may answer kindly once or twice, but since these questions are a common assignment, the individual may become weary. Some posters even argue back that the person who answered is not positioned right in the industry, in an annoyed tone.
To ionus, usually people aren't so traceable, or others wouldn't likely be interested anyway, but I'll admit you have a privacy point.
