Re: Does RAV support a career change?

In general, RAV's goal is to remove you from RAV as soon as possible, however, as mentioned:

They will support you to find work in a related careeer. For example, if you are an IT Project Manager, you could sway them into moving into a Software Engineer job. They don't know what they are talking about. Ask for training in what you want to do, and apply to the jobs you want.
you can identify a training program which will boost your chances to get back to work soon and RAV may sponsor it, should they find your arguments convincing. Typically this involves some professional certificate programs and/or language courses.

Technically this means that RAV won't help you to make a crazy career twist, but you may gradually shift (over 2-3 job changes) to what is more appealing to you.

First of all, identify what you really want to do long term. Then do due diligence (through friends and online research) if that job really is like what you imagine and you can make a living on that (the grass is always greener, and you know it). Then create a strategy how can you gradually shift to your desired job/field over 2-3 job shifts.

It won't be easy, and you may need to be able to commit serious time and financial resources to learning. As a "stressed office worker locked in for decades", are you really ready for such a commitment?
