Ross Said:Hi. My wife is looking for a career change into customer services training at a consultant level. ?
We Answered:Customer care and admin experience would actually translate very well into starting her own business online.
She'll make way more money in a short period of time, and below I have referenced a source that will teach her how to get ramped up quickly.
Not sure if this will be of interest, but why not have her look into it a bit?
Marion Said:Do officers ever change their regiment/corp during their career in the UK?
We Answered:They can, providing it is within the same branch. For example, an officer in the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers (an infantry regiment) could transfer, PROVIDING there is a position for them, to any other infantry regiment (I think Paras and Guards are excluded until you do continuation training). But he could not join, say, the Royal Tank Regiment without going through initialization. But it doesn't take too long, depending on the job.
The idea is that they are all meant to be officers in the Army, not a set corps or regiment.
Mae Said:Question about going to college/changing career? (uk)?
We Answered:No...you can go to Uni as a mature student...don't be put off...anyone over the age of 21 starting a degree is considered a mature student. If you don't have the A levels necessary then you can take an access course...quite a good idea because it gets you back into the idea of studying.
Erik Said:Changing career & retraining in UK. Can you recommend any web sites which could assist?
We Answered:I recommend going to see career advisers first before you do anything else
I recommend the following websites:
You can ask around in job agencies, but I guess you are looking for a career as oppose to just a job.
I think the main thing you want to look at is what sort of job you want and what suits your personality and needs.
The default option is teaching, but I am not sure whether that's something you want.
Hope this helps
Bill Said:Is it possible to become a producer/director at my age (Late 30s) ? If so, whats a good career route (UK) ?
We Answered:Start by looking for a local theater group. Most will take anyone who walks in the door. They may make you work (or act) in a show or two first, but they are a good place to learn, and then get to do either producing or directing.
Try to get a spot assisting the current director for a show, so you can see what all is included. Then volunteer to be "stage manager". The producers and directors work up to opening night, and then turn the show over to the stage manager. They will train you HOW to run a show.
Once you have that under your belt, audition to produce a show. As a project manager you have all the qualifications to do that. The producers do very little with the actors (beyond helping to audition them). They are responsible for finding people for all the back stage and support positions, including the director.
Watch, learn , take notes, and ask questions of the director(s). They can show you the job. After two or three shows you should be ready to try it yourself.
You get to learn and gain experience, and it is free. Some local theaters even pay the producers and directors (but usually a token amount only.) But if you are like me, you are in it for the thrill and the learning, not the money. That comes in time.
Have been in local theater for 30 years and have watched more than one producer, director and actor go on to "bigger" things.
