Escape from Retail Management Rot (Laid off)
Well, I've been in the game for about 7 years and this is the second time I've been laid off. Unfortunately my expected path leads into retail management once again for another company and need to live with the same predictable, volatile career path. I'm not saying I don't enjoy the pleasures of retail but the cons outweigh them. So I'm in a bit of a pickle atm because I either continue this again or I try to merge into something else. I'm 31 with a kid on the way and have a very dated advanced diploma in pharmaceutical laboratory technology (2008), with a certificate of achievement in advanced pharmaceutical instrumentation (2013?). I need some assistance when it comes to parting with retail life. Has anyone done it? Going back into the chemical world is pretty difficult to accomplish right now. What would be some recommendations?
