    Unhappy Feeling careerless.

    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 student services assistant (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 free games along as managing a team of writers
    - keep gym and runner
    - 2 years voluntry work with a childrens charity

    Now that you've assessed your skills, work toward getting the career that fits your passion and maybe gives you any leisure or family time you may desire.
