What is a good course for mid-life career switch
 
Newbie here.

I'm 34 and thinking of a career switch. Looking at courses now and don't know which is better. Any advise? Am in design industry now.

what didn't you like about the design industry?

Industry too small and salary is stagnant.

True but only if you have lots of contacts and also money to start the firm. I can do freelance which does not cost anything but again need contacts and jobs. At this point what I am looking for is a permanent job switch. ^_^

Yes. In fact I did think about it and being a kindergarten teacher sounds good. But I heard that the pay is not that good.

Sorry I'm so picky. Want to change career but also need something that pays kinda ok. I guess it does not make sense if you change career to something that does not pay well. At least must be comparable to my current pay. :p

you are not being realistic on the pay part. stay in your job.

Hey kikilala, found any job? managed to switch?

I have a friend who is in the same predicament as well, any advice for her?

Thanks...
