- Interviews & Inspiration
So many career changers come to me feeling completely helpless.
They think they have an either/or decision to make: “Either I stay in my current career or go back to school to retrain for something better.”
When neither option is appealing, the tendency is to just give up.
But what if I told you that not only are there many jobs that don’t require a degree, but it’s completely possible to get hired without one, even in those that do?
Today I’m sharing an inspirational story from one of my No Regrets clients. She shares how she landed a job as a librarian (definitely a job that normally does require a degree) and thrived in that career without one for 22 years.
These are her own words. I’ve only edited them for length and clarity.
Her lessons apply to nearly every profession outside of becoming a doctor or lawyer. It’s a good reminder that all you really need is passion, the right mind-set, and a belief that your value doesn’t depend on a piece of paper.
