Default New Career

When we finally get to New Zealand I fancy a whole new career but don't know what i want to do. At present I run the financial side of our company and i'm bored of it there is no challenge in it anymore. I am a fully qualified Chef but don't fancy going back to that either.

Anyone got any ideas ?

If you could do just one job for the day what would it be?

Me I would do what I was trained to do so I could get my feet under the table and start earning, then I would be able to look around and decide which career path I fancied, you will need time to look around at the different options on offer and of course more importantly locations, too many people come to NZ and settle in the first place they land in. use your skills to your advantage first!

cheers

I know a couple of people here who have given up their previous careers and gone in to Real Estate sales. They prefer the flexibility it offers, but of course earnings can be pretty sporadic.

Hey Am Loolah

I have flexibility at moment I only really need to work one day a week but I don't most of the time I work 3-5 more out of boredom. The last few years have taught me that money is just not important to me anymore being happy within myself is. I think if I could do a job that makes me feel good within myself then I'd probably bounce from one end of NZ to the other

Think I'm too honest to be an Estate Agent lol

Plod?

Prison service? Fooferfish loves his new career in corrections.

Fire service?

Or go to college to totally retrain in something like radiography?

Or google 'cmc markets nz' seeing as you have fiscal saavy..unlike me. Want to sell some?

How about becoming a Celebrant? You can marry people, do baby naming ceremonies, funerals etc, etc? Minus the funerals, you may find you'd be putting a smile on people's faces?

I do agree to some extent but my heart not in it anymore don't think it would be fair to the employer but it may not be so bad if I did it part time & retrained to do something else at same time
