Your profession doesn’t define you. I know you would like to find a job doing what you paid so much to learn, but sometimes it’s not a possibility at the moment. I have a friend who learned IOS application development and the company he worked for went under. Sadly not all business owners understand that the same rules apply to all of us, no matter what our profession is.
But businesses go under all the time so what’s so special about this case. That was about a year ago, and my friend is still unemployed. The reason he’s still unemployed is that he wants a job in his profession and has still not found the right company. And as much as I want to help him I can’t help someone who won’t listen. I hope that writing this post will help you avoid that trap.
Whether you’re a lawyer, software developer or anything else, you learned your profession to make money. If for some reason you can’t find a job in your profession you have two options, start a business or look for another job. I’m not telling you to give up on doing what you love, you can have a job and still look for another one. Once you found something else take it, but don’t lose your home and family over something as stupid as your ego.
