I'd advise other people who are looking for a rewarding career change to consider teaching - especially if you like working with young people, are interested in a subject area or are keen to find a career path with a wide range of opportunities. Teaching always has been and always will be my way of tackling those January blues, and it could be yours too.
Politicians cannot ignore their voters to this extent and cannot embrace advantages of this. It is the mass unemployment issue that will cause most concern to politician's short-lived careers. Donald Trump cannot promise the Rustbelt States that voted for him that he would bring back jobs from foreign countries and replace these unskilled workers' jobs with machines.
While concerns about trade and outsourcing may be genuine, our world leaders will soon have to come to terms with the increasing decline of human productivity output, as the prevalence of machines - which provide much cheaper and more effective solutions for companies around the world - poses a deeply unsettling challenge to the way we model our society.
The initial outcomes of our analysis illustrate the impact of a well-rounded education on improving soft skills such as creativity, confidence and problem solving.

Clearly the UK requires digital leadership at the highest level to address some of the issues around the introduction of AI. So, I was pleased to see the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee's recent report challenging the Government to put more effort into preparing the country for the impact of AI/robotics.
Just 19% of young women who visited a job centre in the last year said it helped them find a job, six in ten said the experience was humiliating and one in five said staff didn't treat them with respect. While this lack of support was evident across the sexes, young women were less likely than young men to say Jobcentre Plus kept them motivated when searching for work or helped them find work.
The lack of social mobility is apparent in the UK and although the effects of not having an internship may not be immediately evident, the fact that there is a disparity in the ability to receive internships as a result of differences in socio-economic backgrounds its an indication of inequality itself in this country.
The aging battle between man and machine will continue as it has for centuries. The question is are machines taking over our jobs, or is our workload being eased by their presence? This will be an ongoing debate especially with the current rise in artificial intelligence and machine learning technology.
