Currently working in market research but not sure if it’s for me long-term. Does anyone have experience pivoting from research to a different path without going back to school?

Depends, what do you want to pivot to? I’ve had opportunities to pivot to other functions but I enjoy insights and research so I’ve stayed in this area. And no, it doesn’t always require you to go back to school but getting a certificate is an easy way to pivot.

Thank you, I appreciate the insight! UX Design and Product Management are two areas I have been looking into. Both of these seem to require at least a bootcamp, although not necessarily another degree

Went for a pre-employment drug test yesterday. They never asked me if I was on any medications. I had to ask them and was told "oh yeah, just put any you may think make a difference in this text box." I put Xanax, Flexeril, and gabapentin. All of which are prescribed and used as directed. Now I'm terrified that I should have put ALL my meds, to including my psych meds. I've been sober over 12 years and never touched drugs (just booze) but I'm having a full blown panic attack.
