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?
