How did you leave retail?


If you used to work retail or entered the job market through retail, how did you leave?

I know the answer is simple, “Get a different job”. But my issue is I’m not sure which job to take. All the jobs I’m qualified or wanted for are more sales jobs. I’m done with sales. I just can’t do it anymore. It’s unbelievably emotionally exhausting for me. I’m not sure which direction I can go in from here.

For some reference, I’ve been in retail sales for 15 years. I live in a HCOL area, can’t afford to move, and can’t afford to take on minimum wage jobs without risking becoming homeless. Please be kind. I don’t have anyone to talk about this stuff with, I just need help with brainstorming an exit.

What jobs did you take on that got you out of retail?
