I have two educational background: 1. Microbiology, Medical Technologist, Phlebotomist 2. Bachelor & Masters in Computer.

I started my career in 1993 with biology and worked three yrs in laboratory. Then changed my career to computers in 1998. As market that time was boomig, i worked for [a company] 3 yrs and [a company] for 4 yrs till 2004. Then i got baby boy with some medical condition which required me to be home for 5 yrs. In last 5 yrs, i have started IT start up company which provided website design, SEO, Ecommerce solutions and also i finished PMP license. Now my son is Ok but IT market in US is not good!

I am very confused:
-- Which way i should go IT PM job or biology jobs in US?. Which one will be more reliable market in USA?
-- As nowadays website services available at so cheaper rate, should I increase any more services in my startup IT company (which may be hot in market in future in US) to make my IT company successful?

Please help me out with good suggestions as i am very critical point in my career life.

Thank You,
Angela

Your post looks contradicting. If you have already started your IT company and running it since 5 years, then why would you quit that and take a completely different career?

He doesn't actually say the IT company has been running for 5 years; he says "in the last 5 years", which is slightly non-specific.
