Did you know you most likely qualify for services through Vocational Rehab, check with your local office. They can usually get you retrained, advocate for jobs and assist you in rejoining the workforce! Good luck!

Apply at a hospital that is willing to take you without experience like University Hospital. I believe they need surgical techs right now. If you are willing to learn and put in the hard work, you should do fine

What is a good explanation if an interviewer asked why I want to do this job which is in a totally different career from which I have been doing in the last 5 years?

I'm currently applying for jobs in automotive mechanic/technician or mechanic but my background I have done in the last 5 years is Massage Therapy. I haven't done interviews in a long time and so far I'm struggling to explain my interest and eagerness in learning a new skill and totally switching careers. Telling people I'm very interested in that field, it was always something I was interested in learning better and I love working with my hands and are interested in learning how things work has so far not been a good enough explanation for the last 2 interviews I have had. Why is it so complicated for those interviewers to understand that some people like to learn new skills or decide to suddenly go into a totally different career? I'm frustrated. #jobsearch #interview #advice #education #careerchange

Well, I know where I’ve been, what I want and am just taking my time to find what works for me. Money isn’t my only interest now.

I'm in this boat. I've been doing healthcare for 20+ years. Every job has been abusive, stressful, short staffed...I'm so burned out I want to get out of the medical field all together. I like to do so many things for fun or hobby but it's always different when you HAVE to do it for pay. I don't want to get into debt for school either.

Looking for a different job.

Hey guys, I just resigned from my teaching job a few days ago. I have been a teacher for almost 20 years, and I'm looking to start a new career. Any advice as I seek new employment?
