I am a 37 year old British Born Chinese woman that has been a graphic designer for over 12 years - five in the UK and then six in Hong Kong, where I am currently based.
I have been thinking about changing careers for a while, so when an opportunity came up a year ago to work as a project manager for a branding design agency, I took the job without hesitation.
But a year on, I feel that I am not really cut out for the sales part of my role, which I didn't realise the job would entail.
Nevertheless, I am expected to try and get as much business out of existing clients as possible so that I can meet my monthly revenue targets.
I know that I am not cut out to be a sales person and can't see myself staying in this company for long. Having said that, I don't really mind the management part of the role.
I don't want to go back to being a designer full time as I find the hours are too long. I would ideally like to find a nine-to-six job that is still fairly creative. I would even consider part-time.
What options should I consider?
