If you would like to work with Handicaps, I highly suggest a profession in nursing...you may have to go to school for a few years but you get a lot out of it and you can transfer your waiting/people/social skills over. I just warn you that in the first few years you deal with a lot of crap, but it gets better, just like waiting!

Think about what you like to do. Do you like to garden? Look for a job in a garden shop. Do you like to read? Maybe work in a book store. There is a site called continuingcareers.com. Check it out for more tips on changing careers.

Good luck!

If you have the experience dealing with the public, try hotels. They are always looking for freindly outgoing people. Its a steady job and usually good benefits, also most hotels always look within for promotions. In no time you could become a manager.

Amy in Simcoe, Ontario said: maybe if you want to travel... you can work on private charter yachts out of florida... making about $4000/month... or possibly more.

Hi Amy,
I love traveling and really want to change my career too.
Can you suggest or give me some more details about the Charter Yachts.
I am already 30 yrs. Is that too old?
Thank you!!

I thank-you very much for your information. But I'm not interested in selling. I'm not a very good salesperson.

A mother of friend of mine was a waitress for many years like you, low pay no benefits. She got a job in the hospital working with the meals delivery initially, then as a nutritionalist. The job paid better, and she also got good benifits

Low pay?? no way!! I am a server, I have been serving for 10 years , the reason why we serve for so long, is becouse of the money!! I would tell u how much i make an hour , but u wouldnt belive it !!!

Thanks for being so kind,and sharing. My update is, I'm still a server (2 days a Week}. I've been writing a novel, which is almost done. That's the easy part. There's a lot of editing,to be done. When everything is said and done. Maybe I'll be a published author.
I have maybe four yrs before I retire. So, working in the hospital, with the meal delivery, sounds great with benefits.

No, you see, it's different in the states. I've been to Canada, and know a lot of people in Canada that are servers. You get paid a lot more on top of the tips. Two totally different worlds. I know servers here who get paid,you won't believe it, 2.33 PER HOUR. Tell me that isn't horse s***.
