If you are contemplating making a major career switch, this piece by PCDN’s Jordan Koletic is worth a read first. An important observation she makes: “Bottom line is this: you will NOT love every job you will have nor will you love the industry you’re initially hired in.”
I am a career coach, consultant, and head of a not for profit - the Forage Center - that offers humanitarian education training. I also teach at George Mason University and Drexel University. A one time lawyer, I spent many years teaching in a community college where I was a Fulbright U.S. Scholar teaching in Estonia. I'm the author of Peace Jobs: A Student's Guide to Starting a Career Working for Peace (IAP 2016). I've been married to my best friend for over 31 years and we have two well adjusted adult children who teach me something new everyday. I live in Rockville, Maryland.
