Is it too late for some one my age to change careers? Thanks

    consider looking in inside sales, appointment setter, business development rep, maybe logistics, customer service, administrative support. those jobs require little education and companies will train you if you have the right work ethic. companies then may have benefits such as tuition reimbursement or scholarship awards to help earn higher education and career growth.

    i've used sites like indeed, glassdoor, even linkedin to apply to jobs.

    It is absolutely NOT too late for you! But let's be clear, working in a grocery store is NOT a career, it's a job. Decide what it is that you WANT to do and then find a position in that area. You didn't mention what you aspire to do so I have no idea. But with little experience and an associate's degree, you will probably get an entry level position somewhere. The competition out here is fierce so you will need to bring your A game and interview your little heart out. If you manage to get an interview, let them know that your resume may not be as strong as others, however, you have a passion for ______ industry, you're a reliable employee and offer XYZ to the position. Good luck.
