My career peaked 10 years ago. I’ve been a graphic designer, art director creative director and worked with some talented people since 1983. 8 years ago I was laid off and managed to find a job in 2 years. Not in management but was happy to just have a job and didn’t want to be responsible for a department anymore. Then the entire department was let go. Now I’ve freelanced here and there applied for jobs but didn’t make the final cuts. I feel my skills and energy are running low. Just applying to a job requires so much effort to pull out samples and rewrite my resume to suit the position. I am also an illustrator but have no energy to promote myself in this social networking. Has anyone switched careers this late in life?
