So you’re over 35. What can you do to prepare for the coming job revolution?

Do you hate your job? Maybe you feel like you’re just having one long bad day in the office. According to research from Vodafone, those aged 31 – 35 are the most likely to be unhappy at work. The main reasons for this are feeling undervalued, feeling under motivated and being unfulfilled. The main consequence could be a desire for a complete change of direction at age 35+. But is this really possible? Given the competitive nature of the jobs market and the fact that artificial intelligence (AI) and automation could make many of today’s employment opportunities irrelevant ten years from now, is this really a wise move – and if so what are your options? Work out what you want Step 1, whatever stage of life you’re at, is to figure out what you want to do next. Being generally unhappy in your job isn’t a good reason to try something new. If you don’t have a genuine desire to do something else then it’s often worth looking at other, less drastic options. Could you ask for a

10 Tips for the best job interview technique

A great interview is a crucial step for anyone looking for a job offer from a new employer.

Which jobs make us the most satisfied and happy?

If you could do a job that was guaranteed to make you happy, would you? There are many different factors involved in the satisfaction that we get from what we do every day. And, ultimately, we’re all pretty individual in terms of what makes us happy and satisfied, or otherwise. However, 2016 UK Cabinet Office research found that there are some jobs that are a recipe for maximum happiness (and some that aren’t).

Should I go to University or get a job?

The decisions that you make at 18 will probably be among the most momentous of your lifetime. And when you’ve completed your A-levels, the really big decision is whether to go to university or to get a job. There’s nothing new in this debate – school leavers have been talking about it for generations. But changes to the way that university tuition is funded plus huge shifts in Britain’s occupational patterns mean that the answer is nowhere near as straightforward as it used to be. The benefits of higher education Carrying on with study once you reach 18 has never been more popular with more than 415,000 students accepted onto degree courses by Britain’s universities and colleges last year. Holding a degree continues to offer the prospect of higher rates of pay than for those who never go to university. Figures from jobs website Adzuna, which analysed more than 1,000,000 vacancies in 2015, found that those with a degree looking for work were likely to earn up to £12,000 a ye
