Is a Career Change the Right Thing?
I started my career as a programmer. However from the beginning I am not comfortable doing the job. I have a network of friends to whom I always turn to complete the work given to me. At times I feel frustrated not able to do the job on my own.
I have faced worse situations in my professional life and now I no longer want to continue in programming.
However I have a really good communication and rapport building skills and I can say that it has helped me survive this long in my present career as a programmer.
I have 5 years of experience in programming and out of that I have worked in 4 companies in these 5 years which clearly shows that its not the right career for me.
Now I am thinking about career change and since I have good communication skills I am interested in pursuing a new career that requires good communication skills. However in doing so I may have to sacrifice the money and other benefits that comes along with my current job. I am willing to do it.
Please advise if the decision I have taken is right. I spoke with some people I know about this and they advised me not to do it.
After all these years in my current career I am still not comfortable with my job.
