Hi all, well I'm 30 years old (almost 31) and am trying to make a complete career change. It will almost certainly involve a big (poss very big) pay cut. Thankfully my DH earns a good salary- good, not huge, and we don't have/don't want kids. But I am so stressed about the whole thing!! Has anyone else here gone through a complete career change and how did you deal with it? A little background info about me: - had to drop out of college and start working full time at 19, ended up in financial services through a temp job. I've been here for 11 years out of comfort, security, fear of looking for a new job, terrified of interviews -at 26 I decided to finish my degree and THEN focus on getting a new job. Went back to college part time at night, finally graduated this year (yay) now I want to do something with my English degree. I've been looking into publishing,starting job is Editorial Assitant, and I've seen salaries as low as $25,000 or $30,000 HUGE pay cut for me, and I have a mortgage... anyone in the publishing/editing/writing/copywriting industry? do you enjoy it? is it as low paying as I've heard? TIA!
