Looking for some advice on a career change. Currently I am in a dead-end job. Let me explain, it's not the job that I dislike but the company and its practices. The job that I have, I am very good at. I get to meet different people and go into different households each day installing satellite TV. I have been doing this now for 3 years but the company I am employed at truly has no morals when it comes to employees. without going into details i truly feel God is telling me it's time to leave. I've done all that I could there and it's time to move on, this is where the advice is needed. I have a few things that I truly enjoy doing, First I love preaching, I'm a lay preacher but I feet the Lord is calling me to do more preaching for Him. Second I feel it's time to get back into the sales field. I had very good success in the past and have been out of the sales force for about 4 years. My question is do I leave my job which is in a very fragile state right now, not knowing if I'll have a job the next day. With working 10-12 hours a day 6 days a week it makes it very hard to find other opportunities.
Everyone's advice is solid and spot-on. I think if sales is something you really quite like then go for it! There are so many opportunities out there. When you are looking for a company make sure you network and do your homework. Is this a Godly company who really values their employees? Or are they a company who treats you like a statistic and is only looking at the bottom line. If you find one that is in line with your personal values you will be on fire and really love what you do.
