I’m very disappointed with my current situation. At work, there has been a major restructuring and people are being let go, left, right and centre. It’s made the few of us who are still remaining feel really unsettled in our positions and it has created a culture of fear. Working in an I.T. agency has never been easy by any stretch of the imagination, but now it’s just even worse. It’s gotten to the point where I’m actually considering leaving this company and starting work somewhere else. I don’t even know if I want to work in I.T. anymore, if I’m being honest.
I think I might completely change careers. I’ve been looking into the types of jobs that work well for women in their early forties and a lot of my search has said that working as an NDIS high-intensity support coordinator could be the way to go. I am very empathetic and truly care about others. I haven’t worked with people for a long time, seeing as I.T. is mostly a solo role, so going back to a job where I get to spend time with people every day and make their lives better.
I feel like I’d get a lot more job satisfaction out of a role like this compared to my current job in I.T. I would definitely need to do some training and study up on how to be an NDIS support provider. It would be really important to me to be as trained as possible because I would only want to provide the best possible service for those who need it.
Maybe in the future, I’ll be able to offer people positive behaviour support. In Adelaide, a lot of people could really benefit from this service but there aren’t enough providers to be able to give support to everyone. Maybe, just maybe, I could help alleviate some of the hardships people face on a daily basis.
