Am i to old to change careers?
I'm only 30 years old and I'm a machinist by trade but I have lost all love for the job and am bored as hell with it. I want a job that requires allot of travel. I'm unsure what at this point but I want to see the country/ world. I was interested in a few civil service positions but I would need at least a bachelors degree. Anybody know of any exciting careers that require travel and hire at a very basic entry level? Thanks
