If you have engineering background you can surely become a dev.

I know of a friend who went into technician job even with a local degree cert. He say he tired of office jobs too so decided to downgrade and work in a really hands on role. Not sure if its for long term or not.

You sound like you are below 30.
If you are in the engineering industry, you can switch to these roles:

Engineering related sourcing roles; Procurement
Supplier Quality Management
Outsource process engineering
Supplier Advance Product Quality Planning
Regional/Global Customer Applications

These type of roles allow you to travel. Depending on the strategy, some of the travelling can be very overwhelming if you can take it. But also mean you need to take up additional courses like Lean six sigma and CQE first. A PMP to add on will help too. Look out for such roles in your current company and apply for change. Or go and get a LSS Green belt / CQE certificate before moving out of your company into those roles.

loveburgersandfries yup at one point even though i was jobless full time, i took up a part time cashier job just to support myself anyway, if jobless, i think one way is to take a course to upskill. i think skillsfuture programs will help. i know of ppl who went for the BCG rise program, then afterwards got a job.
