I thought I'd post this out there to see If I can catch any advice -- anyone undertaken a career shift lately from one discipline to another?
I'm currently in the IT field and seriously thinking that a change is in order. I know careers in Aviation are slim and not the best paying, but anyone have any ideas for a mid-career IT guy who specializes in procedure and systematic approaches to things? Something around an Airport would be divine. But I'm not sure what qualifications one needs to get to break into that field that is a mixture of operations and aviation. I'd love to be a dispatcher, but those jobs are slim, and not really available in my preferred geographic area
I know this is a big undertaking, which is why I'm researching it from all angles and asking a lot of people. Anyone have any thoughts for me?
