Jennifer’s Answer

Hello Joshua,

Nice to meet you!

I actually really like this question, because there are many ways to analyze it.

Firstly, it is never too late to change your career. I am a Career Coach and career-changers are my usual type of clients. They have been working in a particular field for many years, and all of a sudden want to enter into another industry.

Secondly, looking back at my education and experience, I do sometimes wish I had taken a different turn - in terms of taking more risks when it came to my career. I used to doubt my capabilities when I was younger, so if there is one piece of advice I would give people stepping in their careers is - Don't be afraid to take a risk, if that is where your passion lies.

Lastly, no matter what age or stage of life you are at, you should be proud of what you have accomplished and enhance your existing skills with new knowledge and opportunities. For instance, I am a coach, but my clients also frequently ask about managing their finances, and therefore decided to take a course on investing to enhance my already learned skills.

Hope this was helpful to you and wish you the best of luck in your career journey.

Kind regards,

Jennifer Bari

Kess’s Answer

You can always change careers if you want to! Keep in mind though, if you have spent a lot of time and money on a specific degree, staying within that field may be worthwhile but in a different job. For example, if someone can no longer physically do a job, perhaps pursuing something similar in a less physically demanding situation would be worthwhile. For example, an EMT who has difficulty getting into and out of an ambulance may consider working in the emergency department instead where there is more assistance.

I was actually working as an EMT for quite a while. I was burnt out, exhausted, and dreaded going to work. I pursued other jobs and careers for about 5 years. While I was working as security in a hospital, we had a very badly injured person come in and my first instinct was to help. I knew then that being in the medical field was my calling.

Zoey’s Answer

There have been times when things got hard that I thought, there are so many other careers I could do. But it is not the one I want. In the end, I would not change my career. Even though things can be hard I'm very glad I pursued because I love what I do.
