    Re: lang

    Both sentences are correct and they both mean the same thing. They mean that the man became a trainer

    The second one could be ambiguous, it could mean that you have taken a particular trainer's job.

    Re: lang

    I'd like to point out that both imply you have gotten a new job. Neither is uses to say what your current job is.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
