    i am studying now....i will graduate when i am 41 (eekkk)....but, with the way things are going now i think we will be realistically expected to work to 70 so that is 30 years working in something i will love.

    Change of career can be invigorating!

    38 isnt old….i'll be 37 in April & I have another 4 or so years part time until I finish off my degree. i used to earn quite alot in my job managing a team of software sales people but found it wasnt making me happy so i decided to finish off my degree (the one i deferred 11 yrs ago in Psychology). By the time i am working I will be in my 40,s. If you are going to have to work until you are at least 65 then that is 27 years in a career.

    My friends are still having babies at 38 so I imagine starting a new career at that age is perfectly fine.

    Never too old. A friend from work worked in the office for nearly 30 years and at 60 became a teacher

    Prob depends on what career you want, but I think if you've got hte drive then you'll probably do well in most fields.

    I never really chose a career and kinda Fell into Customer service. I have tried to get out a few times but always go back. Starting Next month though I will be doing a more Admin but still customer service as DH & I start a business (at 29 & 31) and he will be training me to go out on the road if the business grows.

    Looking forward to it. He's been telling me to get into the sector for a while now and I just haven't gotten around to looking into training yet.
