Q. I’ve been at the same job (with many hats) for the same company since 2001 in a pretty niche market. Now that I’m older and have a family, it really started sinking in that I am underpaid for someone with my tenure, abilities, and for the massive amount of work I’ve done. So I’m looking for a new career that will make living easier. I am capable of many things and have many skills, but my field (office job in the photography field) doesn’t necessarily translate on paper easily. I have applied to 50 jobs this year in an array of fields and received one call back (then subsequently ignored). Is there a way to get my skill set past the ‘he/she works in photography, we don’t need pictures taken’ stigma?
