Career Advice – Jobs, Training, Avoiding Feminist Corporate Issues

“It’s Not Your Company, It’s Just Your Turn”

As per the Golden Rules, there is no job for life any more – plan accordingly.

In every job you should be learning or earning – ideally both.

If you’re not learning, consider moving on.

Index

Career vs Entrepeneurship

Consider whether you want to be a regular worker, a corporate career drone. Corporate work is often boring, and vulnerable to feminist quotas displacing you or feminist allegations kicking you out any time. Being an entrepreneur is less stable but has a higher potential for income long-term.

“Nobody ever got rich working for somebody else”

For a company to hire you, you generally have to do work that makes them twice what they’re paying you. Company owners, entrepeneurs, tend to keep most of the profits.

Read the books on Money – especially the famous Rich Dad, Poor Dad book. It explains the difference between being an employee or entrepreneur, assets vs liabilities and general personal financial advice.

Most of the below applies to people who intend to work regular jobs and have “careers”.

Keys to Success

  • Energy to get it all done – look after your diet and get 8+ solid hours of sleep
  • Passion – find something you like, or at least don’t hate, so that you don’t get bored or lose motivation
  • Goals – set yourself a goal, such as achieving a specific qualification or growing your business to a certain metric to give yourself something to focus on and aim for
  • Obsession – focus on your goals and ignore unimportant things like video games – don’t ignore your health or personal relationships

Career Ideas

Men today are increasingly avoiding university but also corporate white-collar jobs for men are in decline for two reasons:

  • AI
  • Remote Work Offshoring
  • Feminist Quotas stealing your jobs

I personally worked for a well-known corporation, a household name, which laid off most of the good guys I knew. They were battle-hardened veterans of their specialities with 10-15 years experience. The company’s division, headed by a female manager, replaced them with diversity hire grads who were useless.

Feminists are coming for your office jobs whether they deserve them or not.

Even the destroyed Titantic submarine was the result of hiring less qualified diversity hires based on leftist ideology.

Safe Jobs

The safest jobs that you can make a decent living these days are… Tradesmen!

AI can’t do them and Feminists are too lazy to want them.

Feminists only want lazy office jobs where they can do very little work. They then have the audacity to complain they don’t get paid as much for doing easier jobs like HR.

If feminists don’t steal your jobs via gender quotas, they create a candidate oversupply problem. Feminists pushing more girls into office jobs means they drive down salaries via increased competition. The more candidates there are for a job, the less companies feel they need to pay.

I once worked for a world famous company in its field. I worked insane hours and when I asked for a pay rise, the boss gave me a serious life lesson:

“We don’t have to pay market rate – we have people queueing up to work here”

Tradesmen often freelance via their own personal companies. This has additional tax efficiencies and they can reduce their taxes by claiming many different expenses. In the UK, being a tradesmen is one of the best jobs short of being a big entrepreneur. Self-employed tradesmen are often smaller entrepeneurs, yet can often reach 6-7 figure net worth within 10-15 years. More if they grow their trade business.

If you can do work that avoids women entirely, that is the safest thing to do, as it bypasses the problems listed further down in Beware of HR, Beware of Feminist Colleagues, Beware of Female Colleagues, and Beware of Female Leadership found in many corporate jobs.

Breaking Into A Field Is The Hardest Part

Complete the prerequisite training for your field (often not university).

Depending on your profession, you can create a non-trivial personal project or volunteer to demonstrate your skills or knowledge. This may give you an edge in showing how motivated you are and can impress bosses into taking you on.

Work ethic and motivation count for a lot.

Eventually, some boss will appreciate your motivation and give you a shot. It might take 2-3 years of knocking on doors to get your chance. Persistence is key.

You will likely need to do a regular job to earn enough to live in the meantime.

Don’t focus on salary when you’re inexperienced. You are not bringing enough value yet.

It’s even worth working for free for 2-3 months to get an opportunity to prove yourself.

Sometimes this is via internships, sometimes it’s work placements arranged by your training provider. Sometimes it’s worth that loss leader to get on the career ladder. The alternative could be losing months or years waiting for another opportunity.

If unemployed, don’t wait for the perfect job. Take any job related to your chosen career path and change jobs as soon as something better comes along.

Don’t be this guy with high expectations:

Career advice - don't focus on salary when you when you're lacking experience

Stay Employed

It’s easier to get a job when you already have a job and don’t need one.

Stay employed as much as possible. It puts you in a better position not just financially but psychologically when dealing with the next company. It’s similar to when you meet a woman. If she’s so great, then why is she still single?

Avoid quitting your job without having a new job to go to. It’s usually better to secure a new job first.

  1. Leverage – if you’re in a job then a new employer will usually have to beat your current salary. Otherwise you won’t move to them. If you’re unemployed, then you have no leverage. The hiring manager and HR can take a long time with your hiring process. They don’t care, because they’re comfortable on salary while you are bleeding your life savings out in high living costs.
  2. There’s no guarantee you’ll be able to get a new job once unemployed. No matter how good you think you are, it’s not entirely within your control. You’re highly dependent on market conditions as you’ll see next.

Recessions

One of my guys quit his job due to his 3 month notice period. He assumed that companies wouldn’t want to wait 3 months for him to start. He also assumed that with his skills and experience that was plenty of time to find another equivalent job.

Just after he resigned the Global Financial Crisis hit in late 2008. Lehman Brothers collapsed and all the hiring was frozen across companies. There was nowhere for him to go.

This is typical of recessions. Companies become cautious to hire anybody, even if they’re financially ok.

My interviews in late 2008 got cancelled too, but thankfully I was still in a job, albeit underpaid and over worked, hence why I was looking. A year later I finally managed to get my new higher paid job.

My guy was one of the first hires in my new team. But by the time we hired him in late 2009, he’d been unemployed for 9 months. His confidence was destroyed, never mind his personal finances. It took us 2 years to rebuild his confidence, although he eventually became one of our best rock-solid workers.

Notice Periods

If you’re on a longer notice period, don’t worry. Many companies will wait for the right guy today.

Don’t just quit your job without your next job lined up and secured.

Make sure the new job contract is counter-signed, and all background checks passed before resigning from your current job.

In senior jobs it’s normal to have a longer notice period.

New hiring managers will face the same notice period with most of their senior candidates too unless they’re unemployed.

As per above, unemployed candidates are psychologically less attractive than already employed ones. In many cases they’re rather wait the 3 months to get the best guy. They don’t want to just take the guy who is easily available because he’s unemployed.

Levelling Up

Additional ongoing training is usually a good idea in parallel to doing your job.

You learn the most in the first few months of a new job.

It’s much better experience to have worked in more companies, as long as you’re not job hopping every year.

You also level up your salary faster by moving companies than waiting for promotions.

In corporate jobs, you should aim to change companies every 2 years.

Online Training

As mentioned in the university article, degrees are both expensive and time consuming – often with little ROI. Most people don’t use their degrees at work. By the time you to graduate from a 3-4 year degree the world & industries have often changed around you.

However, thankfully these days the revolution in online courses called MOOCs. These have made levelling up your skills easier and more affordable than ever.

Twenty years ago we used to have to pay $5,000 – 10,000 for a short on-site specialist course in a topic. Today the equivalent online courses can be obtained almost for free – and usually no more than a few hundred dollars.

You don’t even need to travel to a training center like the old days. Courses are now done over the internet on your computer from the comfort of your home. Many can even be done flexibly at your own pace around your work or family commitments.

Here is a list of well known online training sites. They already have more courses than you can ever hope to finish in your lifetime:

Today the problem is not training accessibility or affordability, but rather time and ROI for your effort.

Choose which courses you invest your time in wisely. Be very clear with intention of which jobs or opportunities they will help you with. Because you’ll never have time to do them all.

Career Advice - work hard to have better options with women once you're established

Women's motivation to work hard is to not have to settle for rich old men because they have nothing going for themselves and must resort to a form of the world's oldest profession

Negotiating Salaries & “Competitive” Salary Job Adverts

Changing companies is the fastest way to level up your salary.

“Competitive Salary” on job adverts often this means the minimum the company can get away with paying based on the current market competition. They’re not a charity after all.

Don’t work for charities either by the way, they pay even less, except to their founders and directors who often receive high salaries. Now you see why donations are shrinking as more people realize this.

Companies will often ask you what salary you want. Evade answering this. You will either pin yourself to too low a salary and miss out on your worth or ask for too much and they will disqualify on that basis. Tell them you prefer to let the agency recruiter deal with the financials.

Negotiating the highest new salary possible is best done by agency recruiters on your behalf.

This is one of several benefits listed further down of always going through recruitment agencies and not direct hire to companies. They are experts at this as this do this all day every day. Let the experts do their job. A 3rd party has an extra advantage in doing this for you for the same reason that it is more powerful to be praised by a 3rd party than you trying to praise yourself and coming across as arrogant.

They may ask you your current salary, this is difficult to avoid disclosing and they will use this to pin your salary to as low a bracket as you can. Some companies will literally say they don’t believe in big pay rises. Avoid those companies and go elsewhere.

Changing Jobs

Don’t change jobs for less than a 20% pay rise minimum. It’s not worth the risk that something might go wrong with your next job and leave you unemployed. One of my ex-colleagues left to for a famous telecoms company. Two months after he started they laid him off due to budget cuts and he spent months 5 months unemployed before he could find another job. There has to be a big enough benefit to counter-balance the risk.

You also don’t want your new job to fall through after you’ve given notice of resignation. Even if you get to retract your resignation, you’ll have damaged the trust with your existing employer. In that case you’ll face the same implications as Never Accept A Counter-Offer.

Make sure the new job contract is counter-signed and you’ve passed all background screening before resigning from your current job.

LinkedIn

If you’re working any kind of office or corporate job, it is mandatory that you have a profile on LinkedIn.com.

This is how many recruiters find candidates today. Job boards are old.

By all means keep your CVs up to date on job boards too, but don’t rely on them.

Keep your LinkedIn profile up to date with your current skills, experience and preferences in your profile summary.

This can be the difference between appearing in recruiters searches or not, and being approached for great jobs or not.

Stay Open To Opportunities – Passive Candidates

Always stay passively open to opportunities on the market.

You cannot predict when a great job will come along. Sometimes timing is everything, and being open to a great opportunity will change your life.

Recruiters often get many, if not most, of their best candidates as passive candidates. Poaching the best talent already working at other companies is the name of the game.

They often watch for news stories about companies changing their working policies, such as revoking working from home. They then proceed to actively approach and poach their best employees!

Always Be Polite to Recruiters

Always reply politely to recruiters with what you would like for your next job.

The current job they’ve approached you for may not be suitable, but good replies matter. This keeps you in their recent memory in case another opportunity comes up. Often you’ll interact with recruiters sporadically year after year, as and when opportunities arise.

A single rude reply can cut you off from future opportunities that come through them.

Always be courteous to recruiters, they can be your greatest ally. Agency recruiters get paid a commission when they place you into a new job. Your interest and theirs are actually aligned. Act like it.

Avoid getting annoyed if recruiters approach you for jobs that aren’t suitable in skills or money. Politely reply with what you would require to move jobs. They will make a note of it and not bother you again for jobs that don’t pay enough. When a higher paying job comes across their desk, you’re in their notes as a reasonable person. They can then offer you that opportunity.

Never burn your bridges with recruiters – they are the net through which opportunities come your way.

Never Accept A Counter Offer

Both sides of your new job offer contract are signed. You’ve passed all the background checks. After these two steps are complete, only then do you finally give notice to your current employer.

At that point, your current employer may make a counter-offer to try to keep you. Don’t be flattered.

It’s cheaper and better to keep a guy who already knows the job. Otherwise the company has to pay a recruiter a 15-20% fee of the new guy’s first year’s salary.

If you’ve ever wondered why there seem to be so many recruiters, this is it. It’s a lucrative business for those who are good at networking.

After paying this fee the hiring manager still has to train the new guy, often for weeks or months. If your employer really valued you, you’d have been paid more to start with.

Never accept the counter offer.

Your employer will never trust you again as you were about to leave, that relationship is forever changed.

Many employers move to obsolete your position to reduce their risk.

Many people who accept counter offers end up leaving those jobs anyway on less good terms not long after. By that time you’ve given up a better opportunity which you cannot replicate due to the important of timing opportunities and so may end up accepting a less great role just to move on.

Politely decline, and be polite in any exit interview. Don’t burn bridges, you never know when you work with somebody again, or even for the same companies again a few years down the road.

Career Advice - be police on your exit interview, don't burn your bridges

Why Changing Companies is Important

People who change companies earn more than those who stay in the same companies.

You learn more by changing companies than staying. This improves your market value.

It’s much better for your career to have experience in more companies.

You are exposed to different ideas and ways of working. You can cite different experiences at different companies in discussions around how to solve problems or optimize the business.

This carry over of knowledge of what other companies are doing and how they are solving problems is more valuable than many people realize.

How Often You Should Change Companies

Do not change jobs every year. This will get you labelled as a “job hopper”

Hiring managers will be reluctant to hire someone they perceive to be a “job hopper”.

They don’t want to pay another 20% recruiter commission to find a replacement your in a mere one year’s time.

You should aim to change “permanent” jobs every 2-3 years.

The Company Is Not Your Family

Companies sometimes try to pretend like you’re all a family.

This is manipulation to get you to work harder and longer hours on their mission without extra pay. To live their dream and make their owners rich while they break you off a crumb.

It’s typical of startups or companies which have a social culture.

But say one wrong thing at work or even out of hours at a social, and watch how fast you get fired by the HR Nazis.

One guy I know was fired for some minor criticism of the company’s security posture at an after work drinks. Gone overnight. Fired. And he was a security expert hired specifically for that expertise, and he was right.

Alternatively maybe your performance drops. Perhaps you’re going through a bad breakup, a divorce, or your pet just died. You’ll find out how fast they’re not your family when you are of no more use to them. Fired.

What Have You Done For the Company Lately

Like with relationship equity, companies will dump you if they get a better deal or can save money.

At one startup I worked at, I revolutionized my part of their business, and what thanks did I get? After years of working for them, free overtime, evenings, weekends, being flexible whenever needed, they gave me notice of contract termination to save money – on my birthday!

It was bad enough I was working on my birthday and then they hit me with that bad news. After years working there as a senior guy they still had so little interest in me as a person. They didn’t know it was my birthday or even bother to check on their HR system.

You can’t this shit up as Kevin Samuels would say.

The company is only in it for themselves, no matter how friendly they pretend to be.

It is a business, they are using you and compensating you for your time. That’s all.

Never forget that.

Why Do You Want to Work Here?

Do not say money. It comes across badly, even if it’s true.

You only take a job because you need to earn money, otherwise you’ll just live on a beach sipping cocktails or whatever.

Assume that the money answer is implied.

You challenge is to find another answer to cite, that makes you a good fit for the role, such as it aligns well with your skills and experience, and you would like to learn that new X that they are doing.

We don’t want employees who are only motivated by money. This is about more than money.

The “Cultural Fit” Interview

“Cultural Fit” is the new de facto cover story for discrimination.

Anybody using “Cultural Fit” is a walking red flag.

If you end up hiring anybody into any position of power such as a team lead or hiring manager, you should avoid such types of anti-meritocratic people. They will actively disrupt your talent hiring pipeline for their own preferred immutable categories such as gender, or their own political beliefs.

When a person is the best qualified candidate, has decent communication skills and does what is asked for them, this is within their control. When a hiring manager starts talking about the nebulous concept of “Cultural Fit”, they’re often looking for an excuse to support their pre-determined discrimination.

If you have a final round interview with an extra woman, such as HR or another team’s manager, be aware that it is often an ambush to try to discriminate against you with the excuse of “Cultural Fit”.

The next few sections address these types of corporate liability humans.

Human Resources vs Recruiters

Recruiters and HR are basically “Human Resource Traffickers”.

They profit from supplying people within company budgets so that the companies can benefit.

However there is a big difference between the two and how you should approach them.

Agency Recruiters vs Internal Recruiters: Agency recruiters are invariably the best. This is because they have a profit motive that they have to place you in a job to get paid. They usually have very low basic salaries and make most of their money on commission via placing candidates into jobs. This means they are highly motivated and effective. Internal recruiters are not as highly motivated as they’re usually on flat salaries.

HR is the worst, they are often blockers. You should be on maximum guard around HR.

HR is not your friend. They’re paid by the company to protect the company’s interests from your legal rights as an employee. They ensure employees are handled to minimize the company’s legal risks. They work to ensure employees can be fired with minimal notice, redundancy or legal risks of being sued.

Don’t hate recruiters, they will help you get paid by finding you new better-paying jobs if you let them.

Recruiters perform several key functions for you:

  1. They will find you jobs and bring them to you via LinkedIn or email from your CV on job boards
  2. They will navigate the nightmare of HR blockers
  3. They will negotiate the best salary for you, which is easier for them to do as a 3rd party

Do not apply to deal directly with companies. If they can’t afford an agency recruitment fee, they can’t afford to pay you well. Better opportunities with better budgets are invariably through recruiters.

Also beware of inferior people in the hiring chain. If they perceive you as smarter than them they will see you as a threat and find some bullshit excuse to not hire you.

This is funny, but don’t do it:

Beware of HR

Human Resources is mostly women. This is not a coincidence.

These are the inferior women who are not intelligent enough to do more serious jobs. Most men of intelligence and aptitude wouldn’t be caught dead doing HR. The inferiority complex of HR women means they’ll take any opportunity to exert power over you to ruin your career to try to make themselves feel better. They are feminists by default.

HR is the feminazi corporate enforcement wing of feminist majority elected governments.

They enforce gender quotas to force more deserving male candidates out of well-paid office jobs in favor of women and their preferred ethnic minorities (not all ethnic minorities are equal under their ideology).

Hiring managers know the frustration of this unfair feminist quota system. Most hiring managers have a specific problem they need solved, to fill a skills position. Most are decent practical people who just want to hire the best candidate for the job on merit. That’s hard enough to do without HR getting in the way.

HR will often use any excuse to block hiring you ad are infamous for asking stupid questions not related to the job. Be as minimal as you can around HR to not give them anything to nitpick.

HR may also look to any trivial reason to fire you. Be extremely careful about any comment you make on any topic at a corporate job.

Avoid HR like the plague, they are a danger to you.

They may have clear skin, but dark feminist hearts.

Beware of Feminist Colleagues – Male or Female

Feminists can be men or women who are indoctrinated into feminist ideology from birth.

They often turn hostile once their ingrained belief system is challenged.

A single comment is all it can takes to turn them against you, like agents of the matrix.

No matter how many facts, articles or books you throw at them about scientific gender differences, it’s often irrecoverable. They don’t want to learn their beliefs are wrong.

They can report you to HR for the smallest thing to get you fired.

You may be able to get away with asking them if they’ve read a blog or book but don’t do more than that. If they’re curious they’ll read the information and wake up. Don’t tell them the contents or they’ll blame you and shoot the messenger.

You should see the article How To Spot A Feminist to more quickly detect which colleagues to avoid.

Avoid these feminist landmines-in-human-form at all cost.

Beware of Feminists on Social Media

Feminists on social media will often get offended and then contact your company to get you fired.

If you’re red pilled to the truth of female nature and say anything remotely true on social media, you can trigger these people to come after you.

If you’re going to comment on social topics, you may want to consider the following:

  1. Don’t comment under your real name
  2. Don’t put your current company on your LinkedIn profile

Scumbag feminists will often find out which company you work for from your LinkedIn profile. They’ll screenshot your social media comments and then make a complaint to your company to try to get you fired. This actually happened to a colleague of mine who got fired for a tweet 9 months prior.

Beware of Female Colleagues

Men can be fired for a glance a couple seconds too long for making a woman feel “uncomfortable”.

Don’t even politely comment to say a women looks “nice” in a picture. You think you’re being polite, but she may choose to take it badly. There was a case on TV of a woman trying to get her male lawyer colleague fired for exactly that polite conversation.

Be polite but distant with minimal conversation with women.

If you can do a job or work in an environment with no female colleagues, that would be the ideal in terms of your personal safety and liability from false allegations or being fired for making some woman feel “uncomfortable”.

Even Bloomberg reported that Wall Street standard advice for the modern #MeToo era is to “Avoid Women at All Cost”:

See the Pence Principle further down.

Beware of Feminist Leadership

Female leaders are often extremely feminist and will take every opportunity to enable female supremacy through gender quotes.

I worked for a household brand where the female divisional boss laid off seriously experienced men with 10-15 years of experience and replaced them with unqualified women.

Feminists want to equalize gender ratios, but only in jobs of privilege and power, of course. They’ll leave the undesirable jobs to men.

And don’t be surprised if they’d rather promote a woman than you. If you get female leadership you shouldn’t bank for that promotion you’ve been working towards. Start looking at your market options elsewhere.

Their perception that men wouldn’t hire them manifests in them doing the same thing and giving unfair advantage to women, even ignoring that some man probably hired her in the first place to be in a position to for her to do this.

Feminist leadership in general should be avoided where ever possible.

Notice the doomed Titanic submarine was the result of a male feminist boss hiring. He stated he did not want to hire 50 year old white men. Engineering is hard enough as it is without discriminating against the best candidates, but feminist zealots can’t be told anything.

Avoid Dating At Work

Beware dipping your quill in the company ink well.

You are one complaint to HR away from having no career.

Do not date women are work, and do not comment on anything around women.

Even if you successfully dated a woman at work, most relationships fail over time. And when it does it can easily take your career down with it. Imagine if she reports being uncomfortable around you at work. The career that you need to earn money to date other women.

A woman reported her colleague to HR just for saying she looked “nice” in a picture. Polite enough you’d think, but not for today’s feminists.

The Pence Principle – #MeToo defense

As per the Golden Rules, ignore the Pence Principle at your peril.

You are one vague “uncomfortable” complaint to HR away from losing your career.

Background Checks & The Rise of Police Allegations by Women

Many jobs today, especially corporate jobs, require background checks.

This makes women one of the biggest threats to your career via police allegations.

Even relatively trivial infractions such as slapping a cheating wife could see your career destroyed as you may never pass another background check. And new coercive control laws can be weaponized to criminally convict almost any man exiting a relationship.

Women use police allegations to blackmail men out of even more money in divorce settlements, knowing full well that she will destroy his earnings for the rest of his life. Or a bitter exe may use allegations for leverage against you for any number of reasons – demanding higher child support or straight up extortion.

If you are ever questioned by the police, you must not say one word except for “I want a lawyer”.

Get a good criminal defense lawyer to do a written response statement only, that is carefully pre-vetted by your lawyer. Do not accept the free lawyer the police suggest, they will not protect you enough, and your career literally hangs in the balance.

Many men will get hit with police allegations in one form or another these days as it’s one of the highest reported crime categories now that women have figured out how to weaponize these laws against men, and are advised to do so by their divorce lawyers.

Read these books on law like your career depends on it, because it really does.

Remote Working

The evolution of office based jobs will be towards 100% Remote work. This saves a tonne of money on office rent. That means more profits and / or more bonuses to compete in the talent war.

What Globalization did for offshoring manufacturing is likely to happen for white collar office jobs. Remote jobs can be done by overseas workers for less money.

Some jobs insist on you staying in the country for regulatory reasons. The saving grace of that policy is that is protects local jobs. At least to the degree that immigration control works (or doesn’t in the case of countries like the US and UK).

Work From Anywhere & Digital Nomads

“Remote Working” became synonymous with “Working From Home” in the Covid-19 era. The real evolution though is “Work From Anywhere”.

This means relocating to not just cheaper parts of your country, but cheaper countries entirely as a digital nomad. Many workers are moving abroad seeking a better quality of life:

  1. Avoid overpriced rent / mortgages
  2. Avoid high cost of living
  3. Avoid high taxation
  4. Avoid toxic western feminist culture
  5. Access better dating pools of less feminist women

Companies like Deel provide international payroll.

The danger with this though is that you are now competing with workers in every country. This could drive your income down due to the increased globalized competition.

However, if you can make it work, this has got to be one of the top options. Work from beaches, warm countries, countries with great food, low taxes and cheap cost of living. This is how to win economically today.

Terms like Digital Nomad and Passport Bros are all the chatter for good reason.

UK Freelancing and IR35

If you live in the UK, you should strongly avoid IR35 contracts. You are taking all the risk of job insecurity and the government is taking most of the money in taxes. Additionally your exes will take a big chunk via child support as a percentage of the gross income.

Tell companies you will only accept normal Outside IR35 contracts via your freelancing Ltd company. If you’re unemployed, take an IR35 contract as it’s better than zero income. But keep looking for an Outside IR35 contract. Give notice as soon as you’ve secured one and counter-signed the paperwork.

Why UK Ltd Companies Are A Bad Idea Now

There are a couple problems with running UK Ltd companies – taxes and exes. Your finances are published publicly on Companies House. See this article for the serious problems this can cause you:

The Future of Work – Tradesmen / Ongoing Learning

AI is likely to kill a lot of white collar and computer based jobs in the coming years and decades.

If you choose a job with a physical component such as tradesmen then you have a better chance. Computer work is easy to automate for AI.

Alternatively you should expect to keep lifelong learning to try to stay ahead of the wave. Otherwise, you’ll find yourself on the scrap heap at which point it can be hard to retrain. This is especially true when you’re older or under time constraints due to the financial pressure from being unemployed.
