I am considering becoming a corporate trainer with a famous US food and beverages company.
I have diverse experience providing training, teaching at schools, working in HR dept and have a psychology degree.
I am very excited about the job scope. The job provides adequate challenges, traveling opportunities (which I really like), meeting with diverse people, and so on. This is basically the first job prospect I’m feeling excited about, after sending out thousands of resumes and attending a few interviews.
The concern I have is what can be my career path? Of course, since this is an established multinational company, I plan to stay on for 30-50 years.
But in the event that the company closes down, or if we have another financial meltdown, a merger or whatever, what can my career options be?
Can I become a Training & Dev Mgr if I choose to leave corporate training? Move into another industry and be a corporate trainer in that industry? Any corporate trainers out there?
I have a bachelor’s degree in business and have worked as both a paralegal and office manager. In both of those jobs I’ve done presentations and gone to bankruptcy hearings where I presented documents and information to bankruptcy trustees. I would really like to become a corporate trainer,but I’m not sure how to go about it. Are there classes I can take?
which one is better ?
which one is high paid?
can a corporate trainer have his own business (independent)?
how much experiance is required to work independently?
how much salary a corporate manager get?
I am curious if any former K-12 Teachers have switched careers from public teaching to corporate training/technical training. I am currently a high school computer/business education instructor with a plethora of technical expertise. Sadly, my school finds it of no use and only wants to target “No Child Left Behind” standards. What are some similarities and differences between the positions? Working conditions? Expectations? Are you earning more in your salary? Opportunites for growth? Any help on this would be appreciated.
I am conducting an informal survey of trainers. I would like to ask the following questions -
“What is a typical day at the office like?”
“What are the positives and negatives of your work?”
“How did you attain your position as trainer?”
“Do you enjoy your job as a trainer? Why or why not?”
The most thorough and honest answer will get the 10 points! Thank you.
