AI vs EI
With the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), where do you see yourself working in 10 years or so? Some believe we cannot compete with AI and that we shouldn't try to, but that we should focus on nurturing Emotional Intelligence (EI) because that's the advantage we have over AI, play to your strengths!
We certainly won't need CV's in 10 years time, they're already becoming a thing of the past, as employers do not want to trawl through hundreds (or thousands) of them with identical personal profiles and qualifications in order to find the right candidate for a job role.
Maybe working for yourself would be an option. Are you looking for a career as a trade, we'll continue to need plumbers and electricians etc for a while to come. Maybe working with your creative skills, by becoming a graphic designer for example. Or maybe you'd prefer to be a part of creating AI and driving it forward.
Will the gamers of today become the urban designers of tomorrow? Would you like to hone your engineering skills? Young children are currently developing real estate through Minecraft, maybe they're the engineers and architects of the future.
With the challenges we face with climate change it's crucial that we all work towards solutions to resolve the problems together quickly. Have you heard of the UN SDGs - please take a look here: https://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/?menu=1300
