Hi, I am basically 45 years old postgraduate in statistics but, unfortunately, I joined private manufacturing company and worked there for 20 years. Now I have resigned from a job and searching new opportunities. But it is very difficult to get a job as industry won't accept me due to the problem in resume ( I have worked in different domains in the same company) . Academics will not accept me due to the gap in education. Should I pursue Mathematics degree ( because it interests me and, here in India, there are many teaching opportunities ) to try my hand in academics or stick to search in industry till I get the right opportunity? I hope I was able to explain my story. Any suggestion is welcome. Thanks in advance.
