Go for it – I can honestly say I’ve never had day where I have ever thought I’m not enjoying this – it is so rewarding and offers so many choices. It’s a role with so many employment options which you can juggle around your life. I got to 40 having enjoyed a marvellous career to that point and thought I would like a family, tried successfully and easily for a geriatric! Being a working mum has its challenges but in this career it is perfectly possible to find opportunities that suit you and your employer – or you could work for yourself. This career offers options no matter where you are in your personal journey.
Seize every opportunity, work in different environments, different sectors, different countries, work with adults, children, diagnostic, rehabilitation, technology, training , supervising, management, sales, governance – the choice is there. While many start off not knowing what audiology is – not many leave once they have found it.
