Is 30 too old to start a completely new career in a completely new field?
I am working in the criminal justice system and am contemplating switching careers to the medical profession. I still get to help people, give back to my community, and make much better income to support my family.
no it isn't don't go on trends, trends are just the outcome of common thinking of common people... Success in a career doesn't depends on the age in which it is started... just depends on yor experience and skills. Infact starting it in the age of 30 will have aplus point... i.e your experience will help you to reach success easily and quickly :-)
No, 30 is actually pretty young. I know a guy who is in his mid 40's and is going back to school for a completely different profession.
If you're healthy and are strong and have the gifts and calling for the field then age is not a limitation. Good luck.
You are never too old to follow your dreams and do what makes you feel fulfilled and happy!
Hell No! That's a question born of negative thought! Think positively, my man! 40 isn't too old either!
Not at all. I did it by choice at 30, did it again at 40, now face doing it again (from necessity) at 53. Whether you have to or you want to, changing careers is a wonderful process, like shedding skins and becoming somebody new. You will grow and your income will grow. If your goal is to help and serve people, and you have the desire to learn the skills, the health field will be fulfilling for you.
No, definitely not!
Just plan carefully so that you can be the most efficient with your time, because you probably have more responsibilities than you did then years ago.
Not at all. It can be quite painful as I know from experience, balancing necessity with making sure your new path gives your life meaning. At 30 I experience more of a sense of urgency while trying to be optimistic, as far as my own goals and choices go. However, you're never too old to learn! As they say, it's better to regret something you tried than something you didn't...
I don't believe so. There will be sacrifices - such as time, energy and money involved in learning. If you have a very strong desire and drive to pursue and succeed a new career or vocation - only you can stop getting what you want in life.
Only if your trying out for a professional sports team.
No... seriously 30 is not too old.
I'm 47 and have had three careers. Air Force jet machanic, stock broker, and now I design and manufacture sleepwear.
Absolutely not! Go for it! You need to feel a sense of fulfillment in what you do. More people are going back to college or changing careers than ever before.
I hope not!! I "retired" in January at age 32 to care for my family and have started a consulting business from home!
Absolutely not! I have been able to change career paths/industries 4 times in my lifetime and at 37 I am considering yet another! If you have passion, feel a calling, have the determination, and/or the brains, give it a go. You won't know unless you try!
