How do I change careers from being a Mechanical Engineer?
I’ve spent many hours chatting to radiology techs while waiting for the MRI machine to do its thing. Almost all of them have changed from other careers. My take on your question is that you’d be overqualified for the job. It’s basically a lot of button-pushing and navigating through menus. There’s also not much real interaction with the patients, it comes down to ‘please sit here, get up on this bed, are you wearing any metal on you?’ It is, however, an easy job that pays relatively well. A lot of the techs I talked to were completely bored with the work – some to the point of surliness – and each of these pointed out that they couldn’t afford to change careers because the money was far better than anything else they were qualified for.
