How to Change Your Career (Part 1)

February 26, 2024 in Uncategorized by

People always ask me; how do I change my career. Here are a few things you can start with today to work on finding a viable new career. A career that aligns with your interests and skillsr. Here are several things to start your change to a satisfied career.

What do you want out of a career? (And be honest!)

Ask you self what are you missing in your current job that makes you unhappy?
Are you looking for a better work life balance?
Do you want more challenging work?
Maybe you just want to get paid more?

When changing careers, you must list what you want (and don’t want) form a future career. Ask yourself these questions to help figure out what you want to do:

What would you do that would make you look forward to your work day?
Where do you see yourself in 5 to 10 years?
What do you need from a career to help you reach your goals?
How much money do you need to make to live comfortably?
What does your dream life look like?
What jobs tasks are deal breakers for you?

You don’t jump into a relationship; you should not jump into a career change without thinking it through. It’s also smart to consider any facets of a job that might be deal breakers. Anyone can work a job to make a living, but when you take the time to make a change, make it something you will enjoy.

Once you find the job tasks you think you will enjoy, begin to look at careers that use those skills. Be certain to research the type of work and salary in the careers to be certain it will meet your expectations. You want to be able to love your work but support your lifestyle.
