I need to go back to work full time after many years of either working part time or not working at all.
I would love to go back to school and learn something so I can make more money and feel better about myself but for now I first need a job.
Any ideas of how to figure out what to go to school for?
I'm low 40s
Thanx

No advice but I'm up to the same point as you except a bit younger. I need to go back to work in September when my youngest starts school. I did secretarial work for a bunch of years and have a degree in psychology. My husband is encouraging me

It's only a bachelor's can't do anything with it

The problem is I have no clue what I want to be.

Can anyone help me and op?


I guess you don't want to use your degree?

You have a bachelor's.at least you can continue from there.
I have 6 measly credits and at my age I'm really reluctant to work for someone much younger in a starting position....
Especially since I now realize( I didn't before) that I'm much more capable than I previously thought I am.
I have ADD but there are so many things I enjoy doing and I'm good at.
I just can't get my act together.
It's so tough

And I really need the money.
That's why I need the job first and then I want to go back to school.
I don't know what course/class to take though.
You guys are smart.
I saw the jobs some people here have.
I wish I could accomplish that stuff
