If you are feeling confused about a possible career, spare a thought for Barbie. She’s had over 200 so far, and is just about to become a Robotics Engineer.

Don’t believe the stories about the retail sector disappearing under the tsunami of online shopping and commerce. We love shopping, and in the next four years over 100,000 new workers will be needed to satisfy our need for the retail experience.
