I'm interested in doing end user training. Is this a career focus worth pursuing?
Unless this is your true passion, you might be better off pursuing a career in consulting. End user training is in low demand and the rates tend to be a lot lower than for consultants. Besides, consulting roles often involve training, so this could be a way to keep a highly challenging career while also having opportunities in training.
