I am considering leaving teaching, how do I market my skills for non profit opportunities? Are there good careers for former teachers?
Your skill set would work well at a public or college library.
A lot of people have left teaching careers to do other things. I would try to apply for entry level non-profit roles or even volunteer at a non-profit if you're having trouble landing an initial job. Sometimes when you make a career transition you have to take what you can get in order to break into an industry but I would think that non-profits and teaching aren't as far apart as, e.g. teaching and investment banking....hope that helps
I am 47 y/o social worker, BSW, primary field of interest is mental/physical health. I enjoy the work I do but I do not enjoy the salary. I am divorced and when I was married the income was not so much an issue. My children are older and I have more time to go be more productive in a career and want a more challenging position. I believe that this career has made me abundantly talented in many areas. I am seeking advice as to my next career.
I am reapplying for a position I held 12 years ago, same company just merged with new one. I have since moved on to other jobs but I really loved this! Relocating back and would love to have a second chance. I might mention, I was going through cancer at that time it was “decided “ it was best that I part with the company. I understand it was probably not legal I was too tired to fight it. Since that time I’m healthy! And new ownership has proved to be much different. Help please?
Are there any accountants on here who work 100% remote from home? I'm a CPA with 8+ years of experience split between public accounting and private industry. I recently had my first baby and would love to transition into a new position where I can work 100% remote from my home office. This is not an option at my current employer. I've been scouring the interwebs for months now with no luck - but I know that many employers won't list a position as remote even though it would be an option for the right candidate. Anyone have a gig like this? Help a mama out!
I have had quite a few detours as far as my career is concerned. Did my bachelor in Electrical Engineer worked at Software Company > then did masters in biomedical engg > worked as a requirements engineer > took a break> worked as business analyst for 6 months > took a break> looking for jobs again. My previous experience aren't groundbreaking either. I am again looking to change the career maybe into Web development or Product Design. I always have a very rosy picture when I start out looking for a new career and then it doesnt turn out like that and I start slacking at work. I think whatever i pick i won't stick through. Any career change will need me to retrain costing me quite some $$. How do I figure out what i want to do and if that career will be right for me.
