I sure hope someone can help, I am surely frustrated..... but I will find the right path. The reason I request your knowledge and advice is because I graduated with a bachelor degree in 2000. I double majored in Computer Info. and Psychology. After graduation my father needed me to work his insurance agency, which I have do for the past 14 yrs. The thing is I am burned out on insurance, it gives me anxiety something awful.
I need a job for support, but also for my sanity (get away from the house). Because of my health (have a progressive neuromuscular disease, which affects my strength, balance, and walking) and age 52, I am limited to the employment opportunities to me. Because my degree in computer info. is so old and I have no experience, the degree is pretty much useless.
I have noticed several companies looking for SQL and database related jobs. I am thinking with my health issues this might be the way to go. I ask you, to get a job in a rural area in N. E. Texas. Where do I start? Is this the direction you would go? Do I have to go back to school? That is very difficult due to difficulty walking and also the financial aspect. I am just feeling so overwhelmed, not knowing what to do. Please share your knowledge and advice, how should I go about getting to the place that a business would want to hire me?
