prisc Hello, if you aren't happy in your job and it doesn't provide you career growth, I don't think you should stick with the job. With your experience you should be able to jump to something better.

Even if it is COVID-19, just take a look around and see if your ideal company is hiring?

It seems you do know what you want.

Unregistered Retirement age raised till 60 plus. Most people do not retire till late 50s at least. Many people reach their peak in career at 40s. You still have so many years left. Go for it.

It really depends on your situation. Maybe you can give us some context - what have you already done to aid the search?

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!

Hi OP,

I've pivoted my career in my 30s! But your options above are such a huge range and could be in different industries too. Even before you consider which path to consider, my advice would be to actually drill down what are you wanting? Do some work around your values, purpose and what career fulfillment would actually look like to you, and then reverse engineer it. If not you're going to find yourself in the same situation a couple of years later Let me know if you want to chat further on it too!

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.

There are lots of universities and scholars program that offers Science and Engineering course that will aid your dream of becoming who you want to become in life. 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
