Need employment advice - Please?
Advertisements [?]
After this week, I don't think I can make myself go back to my job. I've worked there 7 years, on top of a previous 28 years toiling away in Corporate America's cubicle farms. But this place is the worst. Too complicated to tell you, suffice it to say that we've spent the last 18 months trying to shove 1000 lbs of manure into a 500 lb bag and management is now panicking because it isn't working.

Anyway, I need input/advice on the following: I'm an early 50's female, making excellent money in a semi-professional job category. I suddenly have this burning desire to chuck it all, go to bartender school, sign up for a political science degree and bartend to support myself. All I really need to make is 50 to 60% of my current salary to meet the bills, get my 19 year old son fully employed and out of my house, and start living a different life.

Am I mad? Would anyone hire me as a novice bartender at my age? I'm healthy, fit, and physically sound (no joint problems, weight within reasonable limits for my height/age) and love to talk to a variety of people.

Could this work? I have to get out.

Thanks for your help!
