    Hi,
    I am Kendra. A polytechnic student from Singapore who is interested in studying history and considering becoming a historian in the future.
    I would like to ask the following questions about the industry:
    1. what the industry for historians are like ( the reality, employability of historians)
    2. what are the skills and qualifications required to become a historian
    3. what is the automation risk for historians (what are the chances of historians being replaced by robots)
    4. what are the job scopes of historians? What exactly does a historian do?
    5. Is the only way to become a historian through getting paper qualifications?

    Feel free to reach out to me at this email: Kendra.tang345@gmail.com

    Thank you for your time.
