Changing careers after several years of working is becoming increasingly common. If you are thinking about switching careers, conduct an online job search, review employment listings, or ask around to get ideas about new careers. Talk to people currently in your desired profession to find out what those jobs are like on a day-to-day basis.
Once you've decided on a new career, find out about retraining. With training programs, adult education classes and online and distance learning, it is likely you'll be able to qualify for your new profession without going back to school full time.
