5 Hurdles to Avoid While Transitioning into Teaching

Posted about 1 month ago

The job market is far different than it was 50 years ago. For the workforce today, it is not unusual for an adult to switch careers multiple times. Dramatic, mid-life career changes are on the rise. According to CNBC, 49% of middle-aged workers have made a job shift in recent years with positive results to their work-life balance and overall contentment¹.

Although changing directions midway can be complicated and even intimidating, Mount Vernon Nazarene University is here to help you make a seamless transition. Below are five hurdles to overcome when making the switch to become an educator.
