There are a great many students who are enormously attracted by the idea of a diplomatic career. It's a job that takes you out and about internationally and gets you engaged with international and transnational policy issues -- from climate change to people trafficking to managing health pandemics.

These jobs sound inherently fascinating, and they are. To build a career as a diplomat you will need good grades, experience, social skills... and a little bit of luck.

If it feels like you forget new information almost as quickly as you hear it, even if you write it down, that's because we tend to lose almost 40% of new information within the first 24 hours of first reading or hearing it.

Any university teacher who does not harbour a painful recollection of a failed lecture is a liar. On one such occasion, I felt early on that I had lost the students entirely: those who hadn't sunk into comatose oblivion were listless and anxious. Ungracefully, I threw myself even deeper into my PowerPoint presentation to save me from total ruin. Years later, I can still hear myself reading aloud the bullet points from the overhead and see myself turning around to the students to sell these points to them.

In fact, I left after the first week.

Just like the old pen licence you had to get back in primary school, kids now have the opportunity to try their hand at a "digital" licence. Rather than being an official document to certify children as internet citizen, the Digtial Licence is a project by The Alannah and Madeline Foundation to educate children on the ins and outs of the online world.

For many years now I've taken more than just a passing interest in how students can best position themselves to land a job after obtaining their degree. To assist students in their goal I run "careers advice" seminars, I liaise with industry and I maintain a jobs board highlighting relevant jobs in the local area.
