I have been unemployed for over a year. I am ready to give up on an education job. I have considered several options, but think I will start applying for anything I an qualified for. At the same time, I think I will begin a training/consulting business. ECE trainers are hard to come by. My daughter is a CPR/First Aid trainer, so we may set up a training partnership. I shall begin the two processes on Monday. I guess the pressure of no job creates inventive solutions. Are any of you switching careers--or doing something different?
