Downwardly Mobile

A person who leaves a high-paying, prestigious job to take another position that pays less and is in a less lucrative field. One may be downwardly mobile by necessity (for example, if the previous company conducts lay-offs), or by choice (for example, if one was not satisfied in the previous position and wishes to do something more personally rewarding).
