A RiseSmart Blog reader posed a question in comments that I'd like to address as a separate post. In fact, I'd love for other readers to leave their career-related questions as well; I'll definitely take the time to answer them whenever I can. The question, from Deborah Tangeman, reads as follows:
I have just closed my mortgage company after being in business for 16 years. I am looking for a job and/or maybe a career change. I also have a BS Management degree from Pepperdine University. Would Market Research be a good job with my background or should I stay in the mortgage industry? What companies would you recommend with my experience and my age of 55 years? Can you help?
