Thinking of a career change?


Thinking of a career change? Bored with your office job, and only 4 weeks paid holiday a year? Need to get out more? We have just the job for you.

Become a coal miner in Kyrgyzstan. You can start early: ten years old is acceptable. Over on the Childhood Poverty Research and Policy Centre (CHIP) they have a film about a Bakyt, an 11 year old coal miner. Go here to see the movie. One to think about next time you are sitting warm in another dull meeting.

    Thanks for pointing this one out. I’ve put a link on my latest posting to my postgrad careers blog, where I’ve been talking about postgrads tutoring on the Manchester Leadership Programme – seemed appropriate, and another reason why it’s important to raise this sort of issue with our students (in spite of all the “gruelling” marking a large programme like this generates – somehow puts it into perspective…)

    Best regards, Elizabeth
