My Unquenchable Thirst
Thank you in advance to everyone reading and contributing to this post. This blog post is certainly something that deviates from the ordinary and is a call for help to all with a voice.
Although I have been an Accounting professional with over 25 years of experience, my heartfelt burden is to serve in the fields of social work - education- ministry - counseling or the like. My desire is to transition into a role that would embrace my accounting skills while also allowing my passions to contribute to the well being of others. I have been a volunteer teacher and financial literacy case manager at homeless shelters for over 3 years; have served on both pro-Bono and contracted basis the role of Controller for many non-profit organizations; have developed and contributed to the development of many others and most importantly have always held a deep un-quenching thirst to serve in a capacity that touches the lives of all those in need!
My question : What would you (as my fellow LinkedIn friends - some with greater experiences in this matter than others - though welcoming all to comment) recommend and suggest that I do to pursue and reach this dream of mine ? What classes - Certificates or experiences should I strive toward ? ( understanding I do not wish to sit in college for 2 more years - not immediately at least ) less)
Thank you again and again !
