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.
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.
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.
