Change of Career

I am currently taking a Medical Terminology class which I was thinking of taking it to the next level – Medical Coding and Billing class. It’s a change of career move. But I am not yet that sure.

Fifteen years ago, I went through the same process… a change of career. I was already climbing the corporate ladder when all of a sudden I thought maybe a change of career was the best idea. And so I quit my job and went back to school. In no time I became a teacher. It was the best job I ever had. I played the role of a teacher for 11 long years. Then I migrated and resigned.

Now I am working with kids but not as a classroom teacher but a Counselor for the Kid’s Out Enrichment Program and I am thinking of a new career because of some reasons… Health Mental Health.

Well, at first I thought I could continue my teaching career here but upon working with kids… I change of career is the best idea. I don’t think that I can handle the kids well here. The culture differences post a major issue and I don’t want take a chance. And so for now… I am eyeing a career on Health Care.
