    Default Looking for a new career - suggestions welcome!

    So as the title suggests, I am thinking of a new career. I have given 12 years to teaching and feel like a change. Ideally I'd like to work in a field were there is less emotional attachment and less take home work!!!!! I am happy to train for something quite specific but don't want to study for years. Things I enjoy are animals (dogs especially), food and health. I have thought about being a lab tech. Any other ideas?????!!!!!!!!Thanks!

    As in you take the blood from the patients? Or you take the samples to the lab? I've heard that the latter is supposed to be a really good job...

    I take the blood from the patients. Being a courier for a pathology company would be an ok job but I have an awful sense of direction and get lost easily lol. I think testing the samples in the lab would be cool too.

    I'm similar situation. I want a job where I'll land a role easily after my qualification. I don't mind doing anything no preferences at all as long as it pays ok. The only thing I really want is flexibility/part time... Payroll maybe?

    I know this is a month old, but have you considered training as a Ranger specialising in Animal Control, a kennel hand or pound attendant? This is my background and it is pretty rewarding, however I would say (especially with animal control/pound jobs) there is a LOT of emotional attachment involved. Many a teary call to DH occurred while I was working with animals!
