i want to work in a facility where i can help people when its needed and also grow in a company so i can grow and experience new things.
I have been with my company for a total of 6 years. 5 in one department and i changed to another department a year ago. I loved the new position and was excelling.
My daughter's school called me at work on a Thursday to let me know I needed to come to school immediately. Turns out my daughter was raped over Christmas break (I got the call from the school 2/1.) She hadn't told me or her dad or anyone until that day. I called my boss to let her know what the school had told me. She said I had to come back to work, and that there wasn't really anything for me to do now about it. No sympathy , empathy, nothing. I came to work and straight to the HR department who told me to go home IMMEDIATELY. My supervisor should not have asked me to come in. I took 2 weeks off to take care of my daughter. I went back to work for 3 days and then my doctor stated I needed time off for myself. So I took another 2 weeks off for myself. I went back to work and worked for about 3 weeks , until mid April when I had myself admitted to an inpatient psychiatric hospital for severe depression. Since then my doctor requested I be off work until May 30 th. I have gone ahead and put my notice in to them.
I guess my reason in posting is to see if anyone has started completely over at almost 40 yrs old? I saw myself having this same job and retiring from them. But due to this crime I have not been able to return to work. I'm looking for a complete new start. Any suggestions ?
One of the tenets of Jobcase is that we all have to drive our own career success in this new world of work (jobcasers are here to help one another do that). Good news in this #coronavirus moment is that a lot of companies are stepping forward with programs to help.
I dont believe 4-year degrees are going to be as required in the next decade as they have been in the past (in order to get a living wage or better job). Here is a good resource IBM has launched to see if you might be right for careers in IT that don't require a 4 year degree. If you think tech is interesting and thinking of how to get yourself into a new path toward higher earnings - this might be worth your time to check it out... #StrongerTogether #tech #education #newstart #opportunity
