I’m contemplating a career change. Currently I am unemployed and on EI for the first time in my life – it feels very weird. The reason I am unemployed is because I moved to a new town to support my husbands promotion at work.
I was a 911 Fire Dispatcher for over 5 years and when this opportunity came up for my DH we couldnt pass it up. Technically I still have my old job, im on an unpaid leave of absence for a year – once the year is up I’ll have to quit, we live 4 hours away now so commuting isn’t an option. I did have a seasonal(May-Oct) dispatching job for the Wildfire season where we are now.
I loved my old job but I’m not sure I want to do it forever – so with all the changes that have happened it seems liek the perfect time to try something else. There is the opportunity to do my old job in the new town as well- they just don’t hire very often so it might take some time to get on there.
One career option I am contemplating is Air Traffic Control- theres a few different levels within that title but I am just looking for any information/experience any of you might have.
So is anyone on here / does anyone know of someone who works in air traffic control?
Any other suggestions for other careers? I’m open to going back to school – ideally for less then 2 years.
