How do you get companies to hire you while you change career? Maybe because I’m not in the US but companies here are absolutely not flexible and only hire people if they did exactly the same work at previous company.

I’ve had so many careers before: • professional stylist • logistics manager for a freight company • journalist • graphic designer • tour guide • art director Now on my next move. It’s never too late to pursue something new, if it makes you happy — go for it. I learned something from all of those jobs. I want to have my own business now.

My SO got a great job offer in Bangkok and we need to decide soon. I’ve always been very independent and never followed a partner to another city or country. Will it be bad for my career to join him even while there is a little change I can find a job in Bangkok? Not sure what to do right now. Due to covid I recently got laid off and am already not in my home country but have lived here over 7 years. Any advice? Me following him or we both try to find another job in the country we are in now.

Is this churn happening at other firms too?
