Feeling Careerless!
« on: January 19, 2017, 07:00:31 PM »

Evening all, hope all is well.

Last year I left a job/company after nearly 10 years now 32. I was burnt out after 50-60 hour weeks and the issues that arose within the job. Since then I took some time out to travel and been working with an agency as an education and behaviour specialist. January this year I was appointed to a full time teachers assistant with the hopes to go into teaching, this would also mean going back in a year to do a PGCE for a year. It's quite the commitment for something I am really not sure of 😳

My question to you, would you stick with it and dedicate yourself if you feel it means a lot of sacrifice or would you leave your comfort bubble and seek new oppotunities all together? I'm very techy, creative and enjoy photoshop/photography as a hobby as well as getting out and about so not 100% sure a ball and chain desk job is for me?

Quick recap of career so far:
10 years experience in the higher and primary education sector
- 4 years student services assistant and affairs (guidance and information in higher education)
- 4 years night time education officer (50-60 hour weeks looking after 2,000 students - higher education)
- 2 years education and behaviour assistant (current, little pay)

- BA Psychology/Sociology
- NVQ customer level 3
- GNVQ IT and Business
- low GCSE's but complete all

- ran and managed my own gaming site reviewing games along as managing a team of writers
- keen gym and runner
- 2 years voluntry work with a childrens charity
