Depends what you want to do, and what you want to invest in.
If you're looking at being a pure investor - get the highest paid job you can stomach and do it for as long as you can, and reinvest all the money into property. Surveyors aren't paid all that well to be fair. Commercial Surveyors and Quantity Surveyors get paid the most. Building Surveyors on average earn the least (boooooooooo).
If you want to enjoy life a bit more along the way, then using your own skills as you go is a great plan.
I went the route of Building Surveyor - at the time I was planning on doing Resi Valuation and Building Surveying work, but they changed the rules and created the Registered Valuer scheme just after I graduated. Dang it!
But being a Surveyor means every property I view I know what to look for and when something is surface scary, or full on terrifying. It's hard to say that it's definitely MADE me a lot of money over every other investor out there.... but it's SAVED me hundreds of thousands over the years!
Whatever you do. Enjoy it. Life's too short to only care about money.
