If many jobs in the future (perhaps MOST jobs) will be replaced by machines and Artificial Intelligence, what should we be studying in college?

I read Kurt Vonnegut's "Player Piano" as well as several of his short stories that depict a future in which all "jobs" have been eliminated - machines do everything. The people who have meaningful work find their life has less meaning. They ask, "What are humans FOR?" So, I wonder what students should be studying now to prepare for a future in which many jobs we take for granted - from Uber Driver to Accountant to Teacher to Doctor - could be replaced by a more efficient, lower-cost computer. #future-careers #future #creativity #job #job-search #job-coaching #technology

What can I do with my Anthropology degree

In such a broad field as the literal "study of humans" there is an application in almost every field. However, as I am looking at jobs, I am getting discouraged since practically zero have "anthropologist" in the title. What are some ideas of jobs in which I can use my anthropology degree? #job #job-coaching

What are the best jobs for college students looking to pay for tuition?

I'm asking because college is expensive and I'm wondering if there are any jobs out there that are perfect for busy full-time students besides work study. Preferably anything online.

I have a challenge for you today. What are...?

What are the real life job equivalences to jobs like in the movie TheTransporter(2002), Drive(2011)? If you haven't seen the movies here's a quick summary of their jobs: - TheTransporter: Main character delivers packages from point A to point B for the mob. He works by a strict set of rules he makes sure his clients understand and agree to beforehand. He gets a destination and a timeframe, how he accomplishes the task though is completely up to him. The rules: #1 Never change the deal. #2 No names--Frank doesn't want to know whom he's working for, or what he's transporting. #3 never look in the package https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90jvl6PzhQQ -Drive: Driver is a highly skilled getaway driver criminals hire to escape their heist jobs. He too, as the transporter, follows a strict set of rules. »You tell me where we start, where we're going, where we're going afterwards. I give you five minutes when we get there. Anything happens in that five minutes and I'm yours. No matter what. Anything a minute on either side of that and you're on your own. I don't sit in while you're running it down. I don't carry a gun. I drive.« https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wk9bz3ieERM Of course I don't expect a job with fancy luxury cars, sharp suits, high speed police car chases and action fight scenes ( a cheap rental , a t-shirt and a leisurely drive will do;)). What I do seek in a job though are some of the qualities these movies portray that speak to me and work well with my personality type (INTJ): -Professionalism: both characters display a high degree of skill,professionalism and attention to detail. They know what their job is(they make sure others know it too) and they do their job as efficiently as possible. (This reminds me of a story this bodyguard told. A VIP politician arrives at location, his bodyguard opens the car door for her, the VIP hands him her purse (or umbrella) as if he is just one of her personal assistants/servants. The bodyguard refuses and proceeds to escort the VIP to her destination. Now he could have just carried her bag for her out of the goodness of his heart, but in event of an attack that might have hindered his ability to react properly. His job wasn't to carry bags, his job was to protect her and that is what he did. Great display of professionalism.) -Autonomy: while they have a boss that gives them jobs, they have complete autonomy on what is the best way to accomplish their tasks. Once they receive the instructions, they work alone. -Lone wolf work: Most of the time they work on their own and their job success does not rely on high social success. In most career tests I don't score well in the Persuasion category making sales/promotion jobs more or less a nightmare for me. -Driving: I love driving, so any job that involves driving cars as a job or driving to a different work location every day is a real joy for me. -Money: They do their job professionally, they get paid well. I almost prefer to get paid by the task opposed by the hour, as long as it's set up in a way where you can actually earn more while not completely rushing through the task making quality and attention to detail suffer. However money is not that important to me, as long as the rest of above qualities are met I'd be willing to lose some on the money side. I had a perfect(not really) summer job like that once. I was doing surveys for this big research/marketing company. I would talk to my boss on the phone once or twice a day only, he would give me all the info, location, what to do, the tools I would need,… I would drive to location (different location every few days) -I enjoyed that a lot. From there I was on my own on how to accomplish the task given. The pay per completed unit was ok as well. Not great, but ok. Perfect right? Not really. The survey sampling was often very restrictive (find x number of age 79-89 people) at a strictly set location(usually a business). That already limited the available target group significantly. From those left I then had to persuade the rest to participate (by default not my strong suit), every time somebody said »No« I was earning precisely zero. Most say no anyway, couple that with low Perssuasion and…All that combined meant I was working 12 hours a day for very little money. Needless to say, I wasn't working there for very long. A job exactly like that minus the »human element« (i.e. every person says yes) so I can turn out task after task at my own pace as fast as I can and I would be working 12-14 hours every day easily. #career #career-counseling #career-choice #career-development #career-path #careers #career-plan #career-planning #career-change #job-search #job #job-coaching #job-market #jobs #first-job

Is it true that curlier hair and cultural hairstyles are looked down upon in a professional setting? Is straighter hair preferred or is this a myth?

People can manipulate their hair in many ways i.e dread locs, braids, kinky twist, afro ranging in multitudes of curls, etc. Working, in many cases, means being professional. This alludes to the concept of being groomed (good hygiene, tidy appearance). There is this notion that hair that is not straight or tucked in a bun/ponytail is highly discouraged. For people who manipulate their hair into dread locs, braids, or other cultural hairstyles, or simply have thicker curls, it is hard and sometimes even damaging to straighten their hair. It is just discouraging, and I need to know if hair can genuinely be a set back for applicants. #job-search #job-coaching #career-advice #professional-training

What is the best idea to take if your dream for the future is not as practical or resourceful as you once believed?

I am asking this question because many people tell me that I may be overthinking the results of my post-secondary choices. I hope to create an inspiring cartoon that will capture attention and or possibly turn it into a film. However, I realize that I may not animation as much as I like the thought of my ideas being on television. I would like to earn my income in a way that involves productivity and results that can help others directly as well. #business #teacher #student #graduate #counselor #job-coaching #mentoring #parent
