I’ve been lucky to have a career and to have been doing what I love for the last 17 years. I got into radio in 2004 when I was just 18 years-old and haven’t looked back since. There have been scenarios and obstacles I’ve had to overcome whether I was forced to or it was by choice. I’ve always been able to find a way to just make things work even through a pandemic. The same however cannot be said for a lot of people in this industry and people on other career paths. My brother is a great example.
He was a chef for close to 20 years. It’s all he really knew. Once the pandemic started shutting down restaurants he eventually got laid off. He was doing part-time for a small restaurant that had a food truck, as well as helping out his wife who’s a head pastry-chef. Things just weren’t what he needed them to be, plus they have two little girls. It was time for a change. He’s now on the assembly line of a car manufacturing company and has never been happier. He’s just one of so many examples of people who were forced to try another career, or just decided that enough was enough with the career path they were on. If you’re looking to switch careers, here are the 5 best entry-level jobs according to PeopleScout.
