So I think I may be having some sort of mid(late) life crisis.I've been in my current job a really long time and was looking for a change as I want to feel I've accomplished something rather than being stuck in a dead end job with no prospect of career progression.
So I applied to be a trainee engineer and have been offered a role starting in the next couple of months. I haven't had a contract yet but I think reality has just started to dawn on me. I am 50 and female and I know neither should matter but really, am I mad?
I am fit and healthy so the physical side doesn't worry me, it's more a case of is my brain capable of learning all this stuff as it's been a really long time since it had to do anything remotely taxing. I've seen the lovely ladies on the 'Watch Me' recruitment pages and that's what initially spurred me on to apply.
Any views welcome, good or bad!
