If you are stuck in a job that’s going nowhere, or you wish you had chosen a different profession, the good news is that online courses are the perfect path to a second career.
According to the author George Eliot, “It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
Live online interactive courses make a new career possible, whatever your age, and can be a great deal more cost effective than returning to full-time education. This is especially true as you can study around your existing job with no loss of income.
Online learning for a new career is an option for you whatever your current life situation too, as you can fit it around existing commitments such as children. If you are hesitant or a bit shy about trying something new to launch a second career, then studying at home is ideal.
Another benefit of online courses is that you learn at your own pace, in the comfort of your own home, with exciting challenges but no pressure. If your work life is stressful or making you unhappy, you will be able to relax into your learning experience and escape into fascinating topics.
So, what subject could be your gateway to your dream job? Certainly business courses, technology courses and digital marketing courses open many doorways these days. This includes job vacancies in industry, commerce, local authorities, professional services, healthcare and charities.
Perhaps you want to turn a passionate hobby into a new career path. Or maybe even start up your own business. Your entrepreneurial future could start with enrolling on an online Health and wellness course, beauty course or nutrition course. Most people consider self-employment at some time in their lives, and online learning could be the way to take the first step without giving up your current post until you are ready.
Standard Life and Research Now did a survey of British people in 2016 and discovered that 54% of them wish they could change their career. Amongst 25 to 34-year olds, that grew to 73%.
If you are one of them, what are you waiting for? Sit back, enjoy a live webinar course, and make that dream job a reality.
