Career Change

There are many reasons that you may want a career change. One could be that you are just fed up with your present career and want to move on and the other is that is has been forced on you due to circumstances. It may feel that you are turning your life upside down but it could also have an upside where you will feel more fulfilled and contented so always try to view this from a positive angle if you can. This could be just the thing that you need in your life and you could be moving in the right direction. First of all have a good think and see if this is definitely the right thing for you and then if it is, go full steam ahead. You will have to learn all you can about your new career field and you will know that you have the necessary work experience and skills. Then be ready to take the next step and if this means that you have to retrain or get a degree or work experience then start the ball rolling without delay.


Try to put together some sort of plan that you can work to and this will make your transition to a new career much easier for you. It’s time for a change. But what about all that valuable experience you’ve been building up while working away at your job and the jobs that came before it? Do you really have to throw it all away and start from scratch? No you don’t. That’s where your old skills come in. This is called transferable skills. Moving between jobs is much more commonplace now that a few years ago when workers often stayed in the same company for most of their working life. The key thing to remember is that you will have no doubt picked up many transferable skills during your career that will be applicable for a number of job functions. How about starting with a Recruitment Agency. Find a recruitment agency that covers lots of industries rather one that specialises, that way they will be able to let you know how the skills and experience you’ve gained can be used in your new role, and also advise you on the best way to adapt your CV to get the best job.

Before you jump headfirst into a new career, it may be worth looking at taking on a short-term temporary role till you find something that you really enjoy doing. Temporary work can give you a great insight into what it might be like to work in a particular company and you may be able to turn it into a permanent position in the end. So always remember that this could be a change for the better for you so try to make it work and stick it out until you settle in. You may be surprised that you have skills that you didn’t even know you had. Either way look at this as a step in the right direction and be positive.
