    Would you ever consider switching careers?

    Yes, I did!  I worked in a professional career for 12 years.  While the money was excellent, it wasn't fulfilling.  There was no satisfaction in it.  I didn't feel like I had achieved anything.  I became complacent and comfortable.  I'm glad I made the switch!

    I've never had what you'd call a career - they've all been jobs. By that I mean the work isn't something you'd use as something to step up the ladder in the business. I may retire from the job I have now when the time comes, but I still wouldn't consider it a career.

      I know what you mean.  I don't think I ever had a career in that sense of the word either!

    While I only have a minimal career and not yet the job of my dreams, I consider changing careers all the time. It might be good or bad, but I always get easily bored. Self developed challenges can only distract for so long.

      I understand completely.  A job does have to keep you at least semi-interested.  Thank you for answering!

    This is a question that I ponder with every day. I'm so burnt out from what I'm doing and have the 7-year "itch" with my career.

    My answer is in the past tense.  I surely did switch careers, in terms of going from the Hospitality Industry, to the Mental Health Field, to Nutritionist back to the Medical Field, in various positions, to include, Medical Records, Clinician, Admissions Intake Rep,  the list goes on.
    I enjoyed it all and found the changes, positive and educational.  I'd always known that I could not be truly happy and feel successful, by remaining within any ONE Career Box.....Variety was best for me and have never regretted being able to make these changes in my life, easily and productively.

      You said it perfectly.  Variety is definitely good for some people (including myself) so changes are often necessary.  Glad to know that you followed your dreams where they led you!
