Your Questions About How To Find A New Career

William asks…

What would be a good career to transition into after being a teacher?

Need some ideas on a career that does not require going back to school full time and has a decent salary.

New Niche Finder answers:

Go back to school for something else that you would like to do. Because you already have a degree in teaching it will make you that much more valuable in your career. It will also be something that you want to do. Trust me having passion in what you do is more decent than any salary.

George asks…

What is a career that combines writing and investigation?

I am trying to find a career that combines two things that I love to do :)
Thanks for the answers

An investigative journalist perhaps. Lol…sorry….it just sparked my funny bone because you may have just answered your own question.

Or not…

Hmmm….I would think any journalism courses would suit the bill.

Also, a technical writer (in high demand and excellent pay!). This kind of writing is very precice, but would combine the 2.

Writing for medical journals.

Being a legal investigator (oh gosh, I’m sorry, the title totally escapes me)..but someone who researches and then writes about the legal aspects for a lawyer.

I just think getting your journalism degree you would then find a field you are passionate about and use your investigative skills.


These are jobs that won’t become obsolete and are well paying and in demand.

Wish I could think of more….I’m sure you’ll get lots of answers here though.

What it is, is a forum for people who are all going after their dreams…and for people that don’t know what they want to do when they grow up (lol), so you post your question or dream about ANYTHING (mostly completely career focused)…and the most amazing, supportive, positive, encouraging people from all over the world will answer you and give you fantastic feedback. I highly recommend it! It’s free too!

I love to write myself…so I know of which you come. (was that a proper sentence? Ha ha).

Good luck and just keep asking…..you will find your way! Yay!!!

P.s. Don’t fall for spammers on here who try and lure you into their ‘work at home’ schemes.

I love massage therapy as a career! Flexible hours, calm and relaxed atmosphere. Every time I go to a spa, I long for a career in massage therapy. I have actually started looking at Massage Therapy Schools near my area. Massage register, Spa beauty and Beauty schools directory are some good sites for search massage therapy schools.

Michael asks…

What is the best way to start a totally new career path ?

Transtioning from one career, to a totally diffrent type of career.

New Niche Finder answers:

Success is the ongoing process of becoming your best self.

– Sally Hogshead, www.radicalcareering.com

The best way is to read Sally’s little red book (available in bookstores). It will open your eyes to your true potential.

I believe you’re successful in your career if:

1. You’ve found your talent or unique capability
2. You feel alive and passionate in what you do
3. Your work or community involvement makes a difference and you feel you contribute to building a better world
4. You earn a fair financial reward for your work

#1 and #2 have to do with you, as a person. It’s not about any path out there in the world. This is where self-knowledge counts a great deal (What Color is Your Parachute is a great book to explore your true strengths, skills, talents, predispositions, etc.).

#3 and #4 have to do with what people call a “career path,” since that’s where you find opportunities, in the real world, to contribute in a field or function or industry that you consider to be important. That’s also where you actually provide real econonomic value to a company, so they agree to pay you a fair financial compensation.

Good luck!
