When you were younger, did you get a major degree, like Bachelors, Masters or even a Phd. Did you ever use it to get a job, that was related to the degree, but found out that you really didn't like what you were doing? So, you quit that job and from there on, you never used your degree and/or worked in the area the degree was from? Sort of shocking, but there are people out there that spent a lot of money on college, or their parents did, and they end up not working in the area of the degree. My wife has a Bachelor's in Business Administration and also took courses in Accounting. Except for her last position, before that department was closed, she's always worked in Accounting or Financial. She is now working back in Accounting. She got the Bachelor's when she was 49. A lot of folks get amazed at the age she got it. Before the Bachelor's, she had two AA's from two different Junior Colleges. The lady liked college a whole lot more than I did (LOL). She decided to get her Bachelor's, because she knew she'd get a high salary if she had it. Which did happen. As for me, no major degree, only two online Certificates in Purchasing and Inventory Control/Management. But, as I come to find out, most managers didn't even care about the online certificates. Actually, a lot of the things I learned thru these online courses, I already knew from OJT.
