Learn to Love Mondays with a Career in Fostering

It might have been Garfield who brought the phrase “I Don’t Like Mondays” into modern pop culture, but it’s a feeling most of us can relate to. After the brief respite of the weekend, the start of a new work week rolls around all too quickly.

Do you go to bed on Sunday night, anticipating the morning’s alarm with nothing but dread? Are you worried about starting another week at work, knowing that things will pile up on your desk no matter what you do? Do you find yourself taking work home to complete outside of your regular hours or losing sleep over what awaits you the next day?

Sadly, this is an all-too-familiar pattern for millions of people across the country, and it’s one that some people have put up with for years, if not decades, of their working lives. Fortunately, it doesn’t have to be that way.

The Big Change

Changing career paths is a scary proposition, however old you are. If you’re new to your role, you’re worried about what multiple short-term jobs will look like on your CV. If you’ve been working the same job for years, you worry if you have the skills to change tack. However long you’ve been in your job, you might worry that you’re trading one role you no longer care for for another that’s almost identical.

So What Is the Answer to the Monday Blues?

A good way to eliminate all of those perfectly reasonable fears is to try something completely new. Change things up in a big way by choosing a career that really makes a difference, both to you and to the lives of vulnerable young people.

Fostering is a noble profession and an exciting new opportunity for anyone who is sick of the day-to-day grind. You will be providing essential support and stability to children at a time when they need it most, and what could be more rewarding than that? Fostering makes you feel good, is well paid, and offers a wide variety of working patterns, not just a full-time carer role.

Best of all, it comes with all the support you need from people who have been in your shoes and taken the plunge, so they know what’s going through your head right now.
