Career Change



“As much as you want to plan your life, it has a way of surprising you with unexpected things that will make you happier than you originally planned’

I know that I posted this quote before; this is one of my favorite quotes because I can totally relate. I’ve said it numerous times that it was not my dream to be a full time mom but now I’m a stay at home mom for four years already. So I believe that no matter how I plan my life, there are things that I cannot control, so I just let go and let God to be my guide.

Well, I’m not alone because most of my friends also change their career, we all took BS Commerce but one of my friends is now an engineer and another friend is now a chef. Not all ended up with business position.

The same thing happen with my husband, he used to work in semi-conductor manufacturing company. He used to handle, evaluate and improve equipment utilization as an Equipment Engineer. Most equipment in their company mostly uses compressed air to perform their functions. This compressed air must be free of compressor oil; this can be done by using air compressor filter to make sure that the output product from this equipment is free from oil contamination. So there are times that he needs to work overtime but he only works inside the plant.

But now he works in manufacturer of telecommunication products and the job is very different from his previous job. He now evaluates and develops products and he also trains technicians and end-users. Most of the time he is out of the office, he is in out of town trip or he is out of the country. But whenever I asked him “which job he loves, the previous one or the present one”? He said, he loves both.

How about you? Are you planning to change your career?

  1. Even though I finished Computer Science, I applied as a Call center agent for my first job. Eventually, I became a Team Lead. After a few years of working as such, I transferred to Accenture and was offered a position in Transition Management. But my career path changed when I became a Mom :)

  4. I've been in human resources my whole career and it's one I plan on pursuing in the long run. I just can't imagine seeing myself in another field. Although now I'm a stay-at-home mom, I'm currently looking for work again so I can get back to my profession. I love watching my daughter grow but I also need to work for my family too.

  6. There's a part of me who want to go on a different path. I'm a nurse by profession but I've been wanting to be a businesswoman. I'm really torn between the two. =(
