Life Changes or a mid life crisis? Since moving here(TN) I've been in a state of flux. I had a great job back in Sacramento with a small architectural firm and wouldn't have considered a career change, but now it's as if I want to go work in a kennel, learn vet skills and work with animals. I don't like the corporate world, so the pay here for a "mom and pop" place is about 1/2 what I'm used to for a salary and not all that greater take home pay if I started working in a clinic/kennel. Have any of you considered or have taken a completely different career path? success?Regrets?

Oh heck yes Many zigs, a few zags. Am now studying to do something COMPLETELY different from the past 20 years. No regrets, but plenty of scary moments. I went to a barbecue with a bunch of writers and nonprofit folks recently, and every single person there (a couple of dozen) had made major changes at some point. I think it's how life is for many people, anymore. You're certainly not al

So how do you take all of the years of experience and expertise you have in field and convince the person hiring this is what you want? Or do you even reference your past?

    Eck, details It does take selling yourself, which honestly is not the thing I'm best at. I think you have to talk about what you've done in the past, but you do it in a way that emphasizes transferable skills rather than specific job titles. It's probably to your advantage that you're not looking for a super corporate job, because in my experience it's the corporate jobs where the people who do the hiring are most often locked into looking for XYZ on people's resumes and can't see anything else. As with everything, the more you network in the chosen new field and meet people working there, the greater your chances of landing a job in it. So it takes an investment of time and energy.

    thanks! I think I am looking for affirmations and a way to do this. I have the communication skills, just not a whole lot of experience. I also think I am really missing being around animals and taking the scary step of trying to care for something out of my norm of cats and dogs.

    Maybe you could volunteer with the humane society, or something, to build up experience? Or the zoo! There are lots & lots of books that can help if you start to feel stuck -- I read this years ago, and it gave me a nudge when I needed it. You should be able to find it at a library. Good luck ... you can do it :-)

    Thank you so much truly grateful for your input! I've noted the book and going to Barnes and Noble tomorrow to look it up...the library is a ways away. The Humane Society is right next to the hospital which is close to my gf's work, I just want to be able to commit x number of hours and not let them down.

    I was surprised by a coworker today who said he can't quit working because he'll just drink himself to death. If I wasn't working I'd volunteer at the library, walk all the trails in my city, learn more than ten chords on my guitar... So many things to do in life. So many paths to take and things to explore.

    I would love to be retired. I have so much I could do. Even when I was off work for extended periods of time because of surguries I loved the time and as long as I was getting paid I took the whole time I could get. I was never bored.

    We live right off the AT A. wants to hike the whole thing...take a sabbatical and I'd love to do this too! I have been truly blessed by being able to work in the different arenas I have worked in - firefighter, teacher, accounting and people don't believe the things I have done, but I'd like to go into working with animals or finish the law degree I started. Maybe now that I have the support that A. gives and not having to deal with the guilt of not contributing $$ wisee I can pursue that dream.

    I went back to school for nursing It wasn't easy, but it wasn't all that hard either. While I don't regret it, nursing is definitely een different from what I expected. My big dream has always been to own a tea house or cafe (or even a bar), and I regret that I will probably never do that. I had kind of a work breakdown once when I was younger. I quit my office job on impulse day and the next day got a job as a bike messenger. I was broke and starving, but I had great fun doing that for about a year (best part was bumping into ex-coworkers in elevators--their pitying/horrified looks!). If you can afford to take a pay cut, then why not change jobs? You can always go back to what you were doing before, right?

    Yep, that I can do! A. had told me when we moved here...go for it, whatever your dreams are...finish law or get my degree in vet med. I just wish we knew where we were landing. Last week she was told she was up for a promo to SC, so that would be another move. We won't know anything for another month, so all of our belongings being unpacked have been put on "hold" and my committment to an organization...ugh!!! it's just frustrating. I hate not being in control!!

    For me, change feeds the soul. I started out with a large financial consulting firm when I was a noob out of college. That morphed into several related corporate jobs till I quit to start my commercial diving business. At this point most everyone I knew thought I had lost my mind. My Dad and GF were my sole supporters from an emotional perspective. I am now working in an entirely different area and have sold my dive business and started a different business in the apparel arena. This time friends and family are very supportive and *just know* I'll be successful. I don't worry so much that my degrees are in finance, I use all my accumulated experience and networking skills to build the kind of business I want to own. You can't worry too much about others expectations of you, you must believe in yourself and realize change is hard. Before it became a movie line my Dad had always told me "of course it is hard, otherwise everyone would do it" when I talked to him about changing careers. The old guy still supports me x% in my endeavours and since he is now retired he likes to help me out so I give him jobs to do. My Mom is quite appreciative of this as well. ;-)

    I made a radical career change around x years ago. I now love going to work (although the higher I get on the management chain, there's less that I love - I wasn't born to be a boss, I just know it.) I went from admin/business-world to the non-profit animal world, and every day I'm still grateful for it. I so was not cut out for corporate America. The money is bad - more so recently than in the past - I took a serious pay cut to do it. BUT, it totally was worth it for my peace of mind. I think it *is* true that you need to find what you love to do, and you'll never work another day in your life. And even though it's a struggle, I'm working towards being able to live comfortably, save some money, and live out the rest of my life doing what I love to do. Mid-life crisis? The career change wasn't, I'm pretty sure of that - it was more of a happy accident. *NOW* I'm having the mid-life crisis, and damn, I have no sportscar!

    sportscar? Trust, I had a Honda Sx with big fat racer tires...first snow storm on the south shore of L.I. I literally threw the keys in the seat in the seat in Queens and wished someone would steal her! Midlife crisis...I'm giving it up to in depth thought. What do I want to do, How can I help?

    You're too kind - I'm actuallyof the last people I can imagine in a sports car (except for that old Opal I wanted to buy when I was in my twenties) - I'm terribly in love with my little beater truck. I'm not sure of the mid-life crises, except that I'm questioning pretty much every decision I've made to date (except my job, and...er, my love of good food and beer? Yes, except those.). Are you in The Grips, too?

    or just normal Your whole life is in flux....I believe its you who has been posting for awhile getting ready to for this move, then moving. This has been a long while coming. Of course, you reexamine who you are and what your career should be. Moving is all about change. Add in there that you can't do anything concrete for the next month while you learn whether or not she will get promoted again, and you will keep thinking about different things to do. In the interim, absolutely start volunteering with animals. Make sure you REALLY like before you go back to school for it. I started teaching cause I wanted to teach. Found that teaching the SAME course over and over again gets really boring and I needed more stimulation, so I should never be a full time prof, but part time coupled with an admin job suits me perfectly. If you won the lottery and were independently wealthy, what would you do every day? I would either be a travel writer or try to run a travel adventure company.
