My name is Jana. I've been lurking here for a while and would like to ask your opinion about my situation.
I am considering a career change. I have been working in advertising as a print and web graphic production artist for the last 12 years. I do not have formal training as a designer and have peaked professionally and financially. Thus I am considering a career change.
I have an undergrad in Geography. I plan to go back to school to get either a Bachelor's or a Master's. I cannot relocate and I am considering Southwest Texas. I know it is not an accredited program. I am considering another Bachelor's in Geography, focusing on Urban Planning and GIS. I am also considering a Master's but frankly my first go round at undergrad was pathetic, thus could prevent getting into the Master's program.
Has anyone here ever done a career change or hired someone that has? Any positive or negative opinions on this? And does two degrees in Geography sound ridiculous? Any other advice is welcome. And thanks!
