That’s really all I have to say today, but I am trying to be in the habit of posting to this blog on a regular basis. I’ve been looking for a new gig since April, but I’m trying to get out of my current career field as I don’t see it continuing to be viable for the 20+ working years I have until I reach full retirement age. Hindsight being 20/20 and all, I see now that I should have gotten out probably 5-10 years ago. At this point, I’m starting to feel like a pager salesman. It was a great job when I started in 1990, but in 2013, not so much.
I’m not giving up, though. I’m tired of working from home and just about everything else about the field. If I had a way to get training to expand my options without incurring a crapton of student loan debt (with no guarantee that I’d be in a position where paying off that debt would be possible), that would be ideal, but, sadly, I have to earn a living in the meantime.
Going to close this before it devolves into a total pity party. I am changing my life. As an impatient person, it’s just not changing as fast as I’d like.
