What career field should I try next?

After 3 major changes, and adding a year, I finished with Accounting degree. Knowing I don’t want a typical accounting job.

Now am 2 years post college, have been:
-financial rep/ life insurance agent
-credit analyst at community bank
-retail manager

Now am a RE Broker agent, but with as a new agent, impending recession and clients all scared to make a move, I need consistent income with benefits while I build my clientele and clients are not as scared.

Have you thought about anything in the tech field? I was a support analyst for a software company and it had great benefits. And they are almost always hiring. Something to consider.

I don’t have any tech experience. Is a support analyst role more on admin side than tech side?

I personally think a typical accounting job would be more reliable with consistent income. Could you do it for a few years until you build up enough income to go back to being a broker agent?

I saw a posting at Deloitte that says range is $78-144k and that “at Deloitte it is not typical to be hired at or near the top of the range “; any idea on where they typically hire at for this role? I’d need to be at $125-130k and no idea if that’s reasonable.

I just got an offer for 20% below my current pay but I hate my job and can’t bear to stay in it. The new company would be fully remote and the team seems infinitely more supportive than my current job. Is it career suicide to retrograde in terms of comp? Anyone been in this situation?
