Career change from City trader to Zoo Keeper

A couple of weeks ago I watched a documentary programme about London Zoo, and my ears pricked up when they introduced one of the keepers - he used to work in the City and gave it all up to work in the zoo. A pretty dramatic career change! 

So with a little digging I have found his story online, here, towards the middle of the article. I hope it inspires you - and it shows that with hard work (and sometimes unpaid, menial work) you can get the job of your dreams.

As the days get darker, make your career change!

Use the remaining weeks of 2010 to set the wheels in motion for your career change! What could you do between now and the first day of 2011 to explore new career areas, get your motivation up, and/or get some work experiences and new skills?
