With job security a real issue these days, many people are now looking at alternative careers, such as training for IT courses, and so on.

It seems that there are plenty of ways to fund such courses, other than self-pay. So it could be time to retrain if you are looking at a redundancy or downsizing in your current position.

I’m generally an optimistic person when it comes to the future, and I tend to believe that, even if the double dip scenario comes to pass, new opportunities await for those who are trained, armed and prepared for the next upturn.

It’s just around the corner. Be positive!
