Good job hunting

I hope that one day young people will be able to choose their careers based on likely hood of lifetime happiness or maximise lifetime earnings - for now I think most of the automation is rubbish.
Good job hunting
Here I call out job adverts that get computer matched to me for no apparent reason - mainly because it can be hilarious!

As a (mainly) freelancer, I always keep an eye on the jobs market.  It is important that I know what market rates are for both me and also the teams that I coach.  Clients need to know what they should be paying for the people that they hire and compensation can directly have an impact on team performance.

As an ageing white male, I am conscious that sometimes the increasingly algorithmic approach to finding candidates may disadvantage me, but I am happy to play the game and have a variety of CVs and searches that provide me a regualar stream of job market info.

There has been much talk about how technology is/can be used to match vacancies and candidates ensuring a better fit/alignment etc… While I know people working on this problem and I hope that one day young people will be able to choose their careers based on likely hood of lifetime happiness or maximise lifetime earnings - for now I think most of the automation is rubbish.
