snowspa I took the job last time because it was the first job that came along and I was from a poor family. I didn't think so much in the past.

However, in my honest opinion, I'd suggest you follow your heart. Go with that course you love so much. I realize that one of the most easiest way to become a successful person in life is to follow your passion. Study a course you have natural passion for. With that, the sky will be your starting point.
But the thing is, now we are 30+ and if we were to take another degree in engineering, it requires another 3-4years. by then we are already 35-36, and no companies would hire. they would rather hire fresh grads

If so, could you share your story and challenges faced?

Which career is low barrier entry for a career change?
I have 3 options that i am currently thinking - IT security, human resource C&B or finance risk management.

Any constructive feedback is highly appreciated.

Thanks!
Option 1: MBA
If cash ainít an issue, start grinding for GRE/GMAT and gun for a MBA either locally or abroad. There are corporate associate programmes catered specifically for postgraduates which may give you a big break into consulting or finance.

(Note: Please matriculate as an on-campus student, never ever do distance learning)

Option 2: Big 4 Career Transition
Keep your eyes peeled on the career portal, the Big 4s do hire experienced professionals without prior knowledge in auditing looking for a transition. Expect a pay cut cuz youíll start from the bottom of the pay grade as an A1 drawing a measly 2,800 SGD salary. Rest assured no one will be staying in audit for the long haul... taking this oath will springboard you to middle-office roles in banks.

Best of luck.
