I’m 31yo and work in the automotive industry since I was 20. Always in the same area, so I’m pretty much specialized in what I do.
When I think of changing inside the industry, there isn’t a lot of room with my skillset. Moving to another industry seems like a long shot, with pay cuts involved. I feel stranded, sometimes, and it doesn’t feel good. I like what I do, but the industry is changing and I’m not sure how my experience will be relevant to the new technologies.
I usually like what I do, but tend to overthink the future. It’s almost like I forgot that 30mo ago I was living in a different country, working for a different company, and had no idea that life was about to change. I just need to remind myself that 90% of the future is not under my control.
