Skill gap in the work place?
Posted 26 April 2012 - 03:33 PM
Let's say I could tak a part time job for the next year and spend the rest of my time educating myself for a new career. I am smart and can learn just about anything that does not require advanced science or math or knowledge of foreign languages. Any suggestions?
I am seriously all done with my current career path and need something else to do for the next 20 years.

I work in an industry where they lay off or allow the most experienced to retire and hire people grossly unqualified to do the job.
Then they expect me to teach 20 years of experience to someone with none for far less pay than an experienced person increasing my duties, responsibilty, job stress and decreasing patient saftey.
In the mean time people can get hurt and die.
I think it is the same in all types of jobs.
Find one you think you would be good at and jump in.
I know you would do an awesome job.

if you're considering a career change, i say as long you have emotional & financial support then go for it! take some time, figure out the new road you'd like to travel & just go for it. i read something in a magazine recently about career change & it mentioned something like, anytime you get that "what the hell am i thinking" feeling, ask yourself if you think you could do what you disliked so much for the next 20-50 years.
