I'm 41 with a BA in English, under-employed, and willing to give it a shot based on two things:
1. I am tough. I thrive on narrative and the why of the odd, the sad, the strange. I am a good listener and empathic and almost never scared.
2. Misery and loss are a growth industry right now, demographically and just in the vibes out there.
Seeking practical advice and anecdotes from the job. How much more school? How much will that cost? What is a workday like? How is one registered and regulated? Pour your heart and mind out.
