Hi, This topic does not belong in Jobs Discussion Forum so I'm posting here, but it is not meaningless either. It is my life's DILEMMA I graduated as an Occupational Therapist and practised OT for 4 years, then I got laid off because HealthCare industry was down at that time. I was so hurt that I decided to change my career to IT as it was booming at that time. But after more than a years struggle of learning various languages, giving SCJP2, applying thousands of jobs, I couln't even set my foot into this industry and now as IT is dipping, I find OT in a better position. I thought I'd left OT for good, but now I'm thinking of going back to my old field. I feel very strange doing this and also I'm hurt because I'd developed a passion for IT. What is your opinion ???

Anyway you can combine the two? Do Occupational Therapists use any type of software? Are there IT groups who produce software for related groups? If you can locate any related IT business you might be able to use your background in Health to get your foot in the door; domain expertise does help in some areas.
