Dear Career Doctor,

I have got a master degree in epidemiology and worked as research assistant in the University for 7 years. However, my contract was terminated this April and I could not find a full time job for nearly half a year. I realized that the opening for the same field is very limited. I am now working part time as a clinical research associate and this is not the type of job I like. I would like to have a switch in my career path. If I can, I would like to be a Barista or I would like to work in the NGOs. Is it to late for me to have a change? Besides, whether there are some courses available for me.

I am looking forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience.
