Within the next year-2 I will have left my cushy but dead end blue collar job I’ve been at since 18 for a white collar corporate job I’ve spent years studying for. Have you ever had a major career transition and if so what was it?

I worked construction from age 18 till I graduated college doing manual labor in the summers and winters.

I do construction project management now full time.

My greatest transition so far was either 1) Moving from the womb into the world or 2) Moving from Russia to the US.

Not exactly things I had control over so not really achievement transition.

I worked in social services for 15 years before suddenly moving over to the for-profit world of banking (ATMs specifically). It’s. Ow been 9 years and it was easily one of the best decisions of my life. I more than doubled my salary and was able to afford things that were previously far from reach (house in suburbs, new car, private HS for son, iPhones, etc.)

I gave up a corporate job to start my own firm. Now the corporation I used to work for is one of our clients. I’m forever grateful for the corporate experience.

I stopped working for other people and never looked back.

I went from managerial position back to an engineering position where I could work from home 100% of the time. I thought I wanted a C-level position but once there I realized it was just more headaches.

Nope. I've been in the same career (and even the same job) as I was when I left college 31 years ago. I've enjoyed it for the most part.
