Courses for a career (after being an unskilled SAHM for so long)
Answered 2 years ago
Hello, I'm having a milestone birthday this year and my husband has told me I can have whatever I want for it (within a $500-$1000 budget).
*YES I KNOW I'M LUCKY*
I would like to return to the workforce, but being unskilled and unqualified, I just can't land a job that pays enough to justify going back to work. It isn't that I NEED to work (again, I know how incredibly fortunate I am), but I'd like to.
What are some courses I could take, within my budget, to upskill? I can't drive so that limits my options I know.
I don't know. Please let me know what you can recommend. Thank you.
Have an answer?
It’s one thing (and normal) to be older and look older. It’s another to let yourself go and use being a 40 year old mum as an excuse. 40 year old mums can be really attractive and can compete for these jobs, but only if they put effort in.
But, I did appreciate the responses. You've given me some pause for thought, that I wouldn't have had before (whether I'd be likely to actually get work if it was between me and some young attractive woman, whether I'd be satisfied going in to work every day in a role I don't enjoy, the different industries to consider). Thanks.
Hopefully I'll be a working woman soon 🙂
Or an admin course, something simple?
I am working on my licence (once lockdown is over I'll be taking my test) 🙂
Good on you for wanting to upskill.
I’ll post some links for you :)
