Teachers Wanting a Career Change
What could a teacher do?
Pretty much anything! Nowadays it's not uncommon for anyone to to decide to change careers. What seems more common are teachers looking for a career change. The question becomes, what to do now?
There are many things a teacher can do without having to further his or her own education. They could stay within the educational career by going for a position at the District Office, or become a principal, or run for Board of Education. Even more popular is tutoring.
With tutoring teachers can do one of two things: open a private tutoring business or join an existing one. There are many to chose from and most require a credential to even be considered. Tutoring services tend to have flexible hours for their tutors. Some even offer 2 hours a day.
For teachers looking to leave the educational career behind, an ever rising choice seems to be real estate. Becoming an agent has become easy. Companies like Century 21, First Team Real Estate, and others have training programs available for people looking to enter the real estate career. Real estate, whether the market is up or down, is a booming business. It grows more and more popular because our population and our demand for homes grows everyday.
Becoming a writer is also an option. Or an editor or copy editor. You can even do these things from home if you find the right company to work with. Be careful about scams. There are a lot out there. A good rule of thumb, you shouldn't have to pay to view job listings for "work-at-home." Never.
For those not interested in any of these, consider thinking about what your hobbies are. Do you like to make things from wood? You can craft items and open your own furniture store. Or whatever you love to do. There are millions of possibilities out there. And the demand for all of it is growing.
