One of the girls takes online courses. The teaching profession is is going to face a lot of job losses. I have no idea how but the writing is always on the wall. We have this one teacher for Latin, 245 kids remotely and they skype weekly for pronunciations. You want to know where your job is going next, ask a Job Migration person. NOPE, I cannot recommend one but know that bean counting is dying, teaching is shrinking, and so many others but I cannot say for now. I do job by job analysis and migration. Can we automate it? Yes, Done. Non, Can we then move it to a low cost area, yes, done. Non, then kill the freaking job. This is one of the reasons why I always recommend that people become self employed because so many of us want to kill your jobs or take them away.
You can hate me for my ideas but one day, you will see that I had the courage to tell you the truth as it happens. Get yourself trained with the current employer. Upgrade you CV as much as you can. Be ready. Your job is only a step from people taking it away. MOST times, you will not have any notice or warning.
You think accounting is the way to keep a job in Canada? Think again. We have people around the world who have accounting degrees and certifications for Canada. Their wages are much lower. Oh, you should also note that some states allow non USA people to take their exams for CPA in the USA. You think PWC would not like to automate some of their accounting jobs? You think that you teach English and Mathematics and you are safe? Have you seen what kids have access to? Imagine teaching 200 kids remotely. These things are real so you just have to become creative. You will be replaced faster than you think. How is your blood pressure now? At least I told you before you face it on the firing squad. The only profession I do not see dying is Engineering. All the others will survive on a low scale but only with the people who are superb in those jobs and can use technology. Evening Classes for technology, think!!!!!
For God and My Country.
