With DD already in full time school and DS starting full time next year ive been thinking of having a career change.
Im a qualified chef and have worked in kitchens my whole working life. The last few years ive just dont 'no-where' jobs. You know, those jobs that fit in with the kids, DH and school etc.
I want a change but i dont know what. I wouldnt mind going back to Tafe or something but not for 4 years or anything.
Ive thought about getting into the funeral industry (like a funeral arranger) but it seems too corporate for me. I want to do something important. I LOVE working with people, i like the idea of helping people, making a difference. Ive always thought of myself as a pretty compassionate person, creative.
Theres a few things i like the idea of but the reality of it scares me.
EG. I like the idea of correction counseling, you know helping people in prison re-enter society but the reality of it is that most people who offend, re-offend and that would just drive me crazy. I like the idea of working with the elderly, you know helping them shop or playing cards with them or listening to their stories but the thought of wiping butts and cleaning up vomit and being yelled at is very unappealing.
Id really like to work during the day too. Ive worked nights/weekends/holidays my whole life and it would be nice to see my family!!
