I don't use LinkedIn, but I do know people who've changed careers. Or changed from a career to a job. My husband went from being a programmer and director of engineering to teaching college computer science.

It's been 10 years now, and he's retiring this spring with a wee pension and ability to stay in the health plan at employee rates (it turns into a Medicare supplemental at 65, should we decide to stay in). But it took 10 years to get up to 50% of his former salary :-/ But he enjoyed the second career and feels very good about imparting his know-how to the next generation, not to mention getting promoted from adjunct to roster faculty. I hope your colleagues found silver linings in their clouds, too.
