Andrew McAfee argue that new technology inventions actually is positive.
The replacement of humans by new technologies, for me is still beyond imagination even though I know it is happening already. It really raced the question in what direction we shall train in order to compete with the machines. What kind of job one will have and will it be satisfactory and beneficiary. I have two questions related to it:
1) How the recruitment / interview process will look like? Will we be interview by highly intelligent computers? And what criteria will be taken into account?
2) What about people who are not into computers and technologies, what about those who prefer to work with their hands, will they find a job since all manual work seems to be replaced by the androids?
I have met Jae a while ago in 2011 at the ABC Bookstore in The Hague where together with few other writers among with Jo Parfit, Jae was promoting & launching her book ”The Thinking Tank”.
Name: Jae De Wylde
Country/City: Lincolnshire, UK
What is your dream?
To write and to dance in equal measure.
What is your dream job?
Teaching was always my dream job. It is a wonderful career, which allows you to pursue your own interests in extra-curricular activities with the children. How else would I have got to choreograph musicals, teach dance, go on study trips to the US, Germany, France, all as part of my day job! I loved it and enjoyed every privileged moment I spent with the kids. Now, my dream job is to write contemporary fiction – so you could say, I am living the dream!
How did you achieve your goal = dream job?
They say every cloud has a silver lining. Mine turned out to be a family tragedy followed by major illness, which led to a career break and swiftly on to a change of direction – and into the world of novel writing. I was so fortunate to find a publisher who liked my work and feel so blessed that both The Thinking Tank and Sleeping People Lie have been very well received.
What is your tip to others concerning the Dream Job / Life?
When bad things happen, never give up. Look for the light beyond the darkness. If you close yourself to the possibilities of the universe, you won’t hear the call of your dreams. Some things in life you cannot change. Acceptance allows your spirit to calm and to be open to ideas, however bonkers they may seem!
Who are you?

Coordinated by Dream Job Diva
Since 2010 I have been facilitating ”Connect with your dream job” (CWYDJ) support meetings under the umbrella of JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva Career and Life Coaching, and Connecting Women. Now I wish to thank Connecting Women for giving me a chance to start up the group under their organisation and promoting and supporting it. Thanks to it, I was able to grow as a coach and a facilitator.
As of January 2014 ”Connect with your dream job” will be run only under the umbrella of JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva – Career and Life Coaching, and as always it will be facilitated by JO(B)ANNA.
The idea of being a support, for those who are searching for a job, remains the main issue of the workshops, however there will be some changes:
CWYDJ will be paid – 10,- euro per workshop;
CWYDJ will have a form of a structured workshop, than just a support group meeting, however there will be a room as always to share and learn from each other as that was the biggest assets of each meeting;
CWYDJ will take 2 hours;
CWYDJ will be for women and men;
CWYDJ minimum amount of participant 2 – maximum amount of participant 10;
CWYDJ will take place in The Hague, unless you arrange a group and location elsewhere;
For dates and time please check this Dream Job Diva blog regularly and / or the Facebook Dream Job Diva Coaching Page.
To book the workshop session(s) send an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for choosing JO(B)ANNA – Dream Job Diva Career and Life Coaching.
See you in 2014!
