In fact there are two very viable options:
1. Take an online education course to increase your skills in your field.
Many people feel stuck in their job because without more education they are not eligible for promotions. They have gone as far up the ladder as they can with their current educational status. That means they need to get more education. But if you can't afford to leave your job for a time so you can get more schooling it can be discouraging.
Online education is a great option though.
When you enroll in an online education course you can study whenever it is convenient for you. You can study where ever it is convenient to you. And you can increase your chances of getting a promotion in the company you work for you getting a job in a new company with higher pay and a better title.
2. Take an online education course to start a new career.
No matter how old you are, you can start a new career if you are not happy with the one you are in. Even people in their 40s and 50s are starting new careers because they have taken online education courses to get the training that they need to move into a new career.
A lot of the time when you feel "stuck" it is because you are not happy with the job you're doing. You don't have to hang in there though. You can move laterally to find a new career that will make you happier and give you more fulfillment.
Again, you can train for your new career while you are still working at your old job. Think how much easier it will be to go to your job everyday when you know that you are taking the step to move into more satisfying work!
